Onset unveils 225-kW rooftop PV system at HQ in Massachusetts
Jul 24, 2012 - US data loggers supplier Onset Computer Corp today said it had installed a 225-kW rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system at its headquarters (HQ) facility in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
US renewable projects developer Beaumont Solar Co installed the system using 936 US-made solar panels by German PV equipment maker Schott Solar. The installation commenced in the winter of 2011 and continued through the spring of 2012.
The system has produced some 30,000 kWh of power so far and is estimated to generate enough electricity to meet some 50% of the facility's annual power needs. Return on investment is expected in three years, Onset said.
