Solar Nation, a provider of solar-energy-systems and
solutions for business, government, and non-profit organizations, announced it
has completed the installation of an 81kW solar-electric system on Harris
Thermal Transfer Products in Newberg, Oregon.
The solar-electric system helps Harris Thermal reduce and stabilize energy costs and follow through on its long-standing
commitment to environmental stewardship.
Solar Nation has provided Harris Thermal a
6,000 square-foot rooftop array comprised of 336 EcoDuo solar panels, one
Advanced Energy inverter and a Deck web-based monitoring system.
“Harris Thermal Transfer Products has a passion for
quality and service and a commitment to sustainability. We are proud that they
chose Solar Nation to further that commitment. By installing an advanced
solar-electric system, Harris Thermal Transfer Products will realize immediate
and long-term savings that will make them an even stronger business, an even
stronger employer, all the while reducing emissions and helping the
Dan Drummond, chief executive officer of Solar Nation.
The renewable energy generated by the system would be
enough to power up to 83 homes and will meet 8 percent of Harris Thermal’s
electricity needs, providing savings for the company. This solar-electric
system will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 60.4 metric tons annually, the
equivalent CO2 offset of 1,549 tree seedlings planted or taking 12
cars off the road each year.
“Harris Thermal Transfer Products is proud to be doing
our part in minimizing our footprint on the world. It feels good to know that
we can make a difference in our business and our world. We hope our success can
help convince other companies to implement green-energy practices in their
day-to-day operations,” said Janice Ashford, controller of Harris Thermal
