THE RIVERDALE PROJECT

 
 
 
 

In 2011this $1.4 million solar photovoltaic (PV) 'system was successfully designed/engineered, procured, constructed, installed and grid-connected by Supan Inc at the historic Riverdale Woollen Mill in Inglewood, Ontario.

We have installed a 232KW (DC) 1200KW (AC) rooftop solar system involving 800 high efficiency solar panels, non-penetrating ballasted racking, over three miles of wire, two SatCon 1OOKW inverters and a web-based monitoring system.

Supan and SP-One

To strengthen its expertise in large PV systems design and installation Supan Solar Solutions has formed an alliance with SP-One, a Pennsylvania-based full scale alternative energy company with primary focuses on integrating solar PV, solar thermal, co-generation and waste-to-energy technologies for its clients. SP-One was founded in 1991 to provide energy solutions for businesses and municipalities as well as consultation services to electrical and mechanical contractors. Following are some of the projects done:

   
 

Project Name: Pathmark

Location: New Jersey

Size:786,000 watts

Pathmark engaged the services of SP-One to install a total of 786,000 watts on three of their New Jersey grocery stores. This project generates 990,000 kWh annually which equates to enough electricity to power 100 homes. Each array was comprised of 1,250 Sharp solar panels mounted to a Sunlink non-penetrating aluminum substructure and then ballasted with concrete pavers, capable of holding the plant down in wind speeds greater than 100 mph.

 

 

 

 

Project Name: Seagull Lighting

Location: Riverside, NJ

Size: 1,000,000 watts

Seagull Lighting of Riverside, NJ was one of SP-One's first projects under a Power Purchase Agreement. The Power Purchase Agreement enabled the client to have a financing option with no money out of their pocket. The Riverside and Burlington New Jersey facilities installed a total of 1,000,000 watts. This project generates 1,260,000 kWh annually which equates to powering 125 homes. Each array was comprised of 2,778 BP solar panels mounted to a Sunlink non-penetrating aluminum substructure and then ballasted with concrete pavers, capable of holding the plant down in wind speeds greater than 100 mph.

 
 

Project Name: Vacation Property

Location: Lehigh Valley, PA

Size: 8,640 watts

An existing client of ours referred us to a property owner of a second home near the Pocono Mountains. The property owner has a large parcel of land with a home, a pool, a pool house and an apartment above the detached garage. The entire property, including the heat and hot water, operates off of electric energy. In Pennsylvania, electricity rate caps are ending resulting in substantially higher electric bills. This property resides in PP&L's territory whose rate caps came off as of December 31, 2009. Rather than pay the increased cost of their utilities, this property owner hired SP-One to install a ground array consisting of 36, high efficiency, Suniva solar panels which tie into the home. This system offsets over 90% of the annual electricity demand.

 

 

Project Name: Architect's Home office

Location: Lower Merion, PA

Size:1,920 watts

Pathmark engaged the services of SP-One to install a total of 786,000 watts on three of their New Jersey grocery stores. This project generates 990,000 kWh annually which equates to enough electricity to power 100 homes. Each array was comprised of 1,250 Sharp solar panels mounted to a Sunlink non-penetrating aluminum substructure and then ballasted with concrete pavers, capable of holding the plant down in wind speeds greater than 100 mph.
