New Roof Installation Provides Synergistic Timing For PV Solar System
Branford, CT; Bio-Med Devices of Guilford, CT has selected the team of Independence Solar, LLC and Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc. to install their PV solar energy system. The 125 kW capacity system will reduce energy costs and earn federal tax credits. Bio-Med Devices will also benefit from Connecticut's ZREC program, which provides renewable energy credits through a 15 year contract with CL&P.
During a winter snow storm, Munger inspected Bio-Med's roof and determined it to be in disrepair. This created serendipity for installing a Varco-Pruden high performance, low profile standing seam roof system over Bio-Med's existing metal roof, and for Bio-Med to benefit by investing in a PV Solar energy system. As GC Munger will be responsible for project management, permitting, roof installation, and installation of the PV solar system on the reinforced roof. Munger's partner, Independence Solar, is the project developer with responsibility for electrical system design, financing, material procurement, and will facilitate the relationship with the relevant electrical power company.
"As a construction company Munger can create the proper roofing infrastructure to support a PV solar system," said David DeMaio, Munger president. "After we introduced Bio-Med management to PV solar technology, they determined that the ROI would provide a great opportunity for their company."
