Illinois Printer Completes Solar Initiative
VALMEYER, Ill. - January 24, 2018 - MAR recently completed the installation of an on-site solar array.
The 300kw system will partially offset MAR’s electrical usage. The 30,000-sq.-ft. array will not only reduce grid electrical demand, it is also estimated to eliminate 482 metric tons of CO2 annually.
“After reviewing the options, this really turned out to be a wise decision for us.” stated Scott Roever, VP of digital print and part-owner of MAR. “This is a classic win-win. We can reduce our electrical bill with a 6 to 7 year ROI and the estimated carbon offset is equivalent to over 1,100 barrels of oil saved annually.”
Roever continued, “The installation of the 836 panels, sub-systems and controls was surprisingly quick. We are very pleased with how well this was executed. We are looking forward to years of reliable, cost-effective power generation from the system.”
