ANSONIA, Conn., Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HOMA Pump Technology, a global manufacturer of submersible pumps, is now generating 100 percent of its anticipated electricity usage at its Ansonia, Connecticut facility from a recently completed solar project designed, engineered, and installed by the Ross Solar Group.
Commissioned in December of 2014, the 104,640-watt installation is comprised of 320 high-efficiency SunPower solar panels, and four SMA Tripower 24000 TL inverters. The system is expected to generate in excess of 125,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy per year which, according to estimates provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will offset more than 84 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing almost 480 cars from Connecticut's roads over the next 30 years.
HOMA products are known worldwide for superb engineering and adherence to the strictest standards throughout the manufacturing process, producing the highest quality, most reliable and efficient pumping equipment available. "This solar project demonstrates our continued commitment to implementing leading technology, and to be engaged and responsible corporate partners for growing renewable energy in Connecticut," said HOMA controller Josh Walsh. "The Ross Solar Group's responsiveness to our concerns, along with their entire staff's commitment to quality, communication, and customer service, made them a great partner for this project."
The project was made possible through awards that Ross Solar secured on HOMA's behalf through the Connecticut ZREC program.
