Sika Sarnafil Centerplan Construction Company LLC was hired by Greenskies Renewable Energy LLC to install a solar installation at Sika Sarnafil in Canton, Massachusetts. Sika, a worldwide market leader in thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes, is hosting the solar project at its Dan Road facility. The project will not only generate electricity but will also serve as a demonstration of four unique solar photovoltaic technologies. The arrays were capitalized, designed, and engineered by Greenskies utilizing a Solar Power Purchase Agreement. Centerplan performed this rooftop installation in fewer than four months. Phase I of the project consisted of two 12,500 square foot arrays. Phase I will displace approximately 37 percent of the facilityís entire electric usage and 82 percent of its peak power requirements. The first array uses Sharp monocrystalline silicon modules, a common form of photovoltaic solar. The array consists of 325 modules that are expected to produce 87,766 kWh of electricity in the first year of operation. The second array consists of 450 Solyndra thin-film modules and is expected to produce nearly 95,000 kWh annually using the same footprint. The total electricity produced by Phase I is enough to power nearly 25 New England homes, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
