Guarantee Electrical Installs 25kW Solar and 1kW Wind Project
At O’Fallon Public Works and Street Division
June 14, 2011 – ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Guarantee Electrical Company has announced the completion of their most recent St. Louis solar and wind renewable energy installation. The company recently finished a 25.2kW Grid Interactive Photovoltaic System that has been mounted on the roof of The O’Fallon Public Works and Street Division Building in O’Fallon Missouri. In addition to the solar panels, Guarantee also installed a 1kW vertical axis wind turbine. The system was made possible as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, as well as the Ameren Missouri Photovoltaic Rebate Program.
The installation, comprised of 105 panels, was flush mounted onto the roof of the Public Street Division’s warehouse while the wind turbine was erected in front of the newly purchased property adjacent to the warehouse. The grid-tie functionality of each provides the city with a renewable energy solution that can be used on site or be fed back to the local energy grid. The system will improve the O’Fallon Public Work’s energy efficiency, reducing the amount of electricity expended annually by 32,075 kilowatt hours, nearly the usage of 6 average homes. Throughout the twenty-five year warranted lifetime of the system, the array will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 775 tons of CO².
While Guarantee Electrical has been industriously servicing customers nationwide for over a century, the company is currently taking a conscientious approach to the newly-arrived solar market. The company has brought on staff with a combined experience of over 30 years in the industry, in addition to their existing staff of qualified electrical contractors. This allows the company to give customers advanced onsite design and installation services, all in one turn-key package. Starting with a Preliminary Clean Power Plan through Guarantee Electrical provides commercial, industrial and municipal properties with a comprehensive plan that includes integrated energy analysis, system sizing, project scheduling and demonstrated ROI. Guarantee also completes the complex process of identification and filing of state, federal and utility incentives.
Guarantee Electrical is devoted to building a more sustainable and reliable energy future for St. Louis and the surrounding region. Through their new efforts, Guarantee Electrical can help increase efficiency, lower monthly utility bills and reduce dependence on fossil fuels!
