Genie Solar and Kraft Power: solar rooftop system completion

This Tuesday, Genie Solar Energy announced it completed installing a solar rooftop system for Kraft Power. Moreover, this installation will provide the generation and cogeneration system provider with 57.5 kW capacity. Therefore, Kraft will be able to offset the equivalent of 447,969 pounds of coal in CO2 emissions.

Furthermore, the company aims to offset the equivalent of 1,008,804 driven by combustion-powered cars or 46 houses per year for the next 25 years.

Hence, Owen Duffy, CEO of Kraft Power, said, “Kraft Power is elated that, with the completion of this project; we can offset up to 100% of our average electricity consumption with electricity generated by American-made solar panels.”

Besides, the CEO added that “is a provider of on-site critical power systems to (its) clients’ facilities; (Kraft) continues to lead by example through the expansion of its solar program.”

In the same way, “with the solar arrays now in place at Kraft’s New Jersey location;” the company took another big step to reduce its consumption.  

For instance, Kraft Power supplies on-site power systems to hospitals, factories, communications, and other facilities that require reliable energy generation.

Reception and expectations

Furthermore, the company also provides highly efficient cogeneration solutions. Indeed, many of these systems convert renewable biogas waste into clean energy.

“We are delighted to have designed, built, and installed this successful project for Kraft Power. Specifically, it is one of the leaders in its field;” said Genie Solar’s Managing Director Sara Schwandt.

Thus, “we designed this project to maximize the return on investment over the project lifetime utilizing solar panels made in America. Since completion, our system’s performance exceeded expectations, further enhancing the project economics.”

Finally, Schwandt added, “we deliver tailor-made strategic energy plans and installations to maximize value for our clients whether their priorities are greater energy efficiency or cleaner and greener solutions. We also help clients finance, lease, and buy solar generation systems. For instance, this is possible while maximizing the value of grants and other incentives.”
