Dynamic Energy installs 207-kW solar array on Connecticut animal shelter
Dynamic Energy Solutions, a full-service solar energy solutions provider, has completed the installation of a rooftop solar array at The Simon Foundation’s Animal Rescue and Adoption Center in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
The Simon Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to the preservation and adoption of dogs and cats that would otherwise be abandoned, neglected, abused or euthanized. The 207-kW rooftop system is expected to produce more than 230,000 KWh annually, which will supply approximately 80% of the facility’s annual electricity consumption. The system will significantly reduce the foundation’s electricity costs, allowing it to apply those funds to animals in need. The rooftop array is estimated to save the Simon Foundation close to $1 million over the system’s life.
“The installation of this new solar energy system will allow us significant savings on operational costs,” said Lisa W. Agresti, Executive Director at the Simon Foundation. “Those funds can then be used to further our mission of, ‘Until there are none, adopt one.’ This is a great opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of these animals.”
In addition to the financial benefits expected, the solar array will also reduce the foundation’s carbon footprint.
“Dynamic Energy is honored to be a part of this important project that showcases how solar energy can benefit people, pets, and the planet,” said Tim Carr, Vice President of Business Development at Dynamic Energy Solutions. “We applaud Greenworks Lending for their participation and The Simon Foundation for its leadership as it continues saving the lives of animals across Connecticut.”
