Like many manufacturers, Absolute Coatings has a high electic bill. Sunrise analyzed the building, roof, and electic system and then showed Absolute just how much money they could save by going solar.
They deveoped a staged plan to install solar as the roofs were being replaced. The first 82KW (of the planned 200KW system) has now been installed, in conjunction with the fully warranteed new roofs. The result is immediately contributing to the bottom line.
One of the great benefits of Sunrise’s micro inverter technology is the ability to easily expand the system at a future date without impacting the existing system.
Absolute’s solar system is designed to be expanded when the next phase of roof repairs are completed, sometime next year, bringing the total system size to 200KW and the utility electric usage down to zero.
