Paradise Energy Solutions finished installation of a 1.792-MW, 4,480-panel solar array at home exterior manufacturer ProVia’s Cherry Ridge facility in Ohio. The system is among the largest privately-owned installations in the state and is expected to reduce electrical consumption by 60% at the facility.
“As we investigated this project, we determined that we could successfully balance a socially responsible choice with economic feasibility, which made solar an excellent solution,” says Larry Troyer, CFO for ProVia. “This is a long-term investment that’s good for our company and good for the environment.”
The solar panels are installed on the rooftop and provide enough energy to run about 240 average-sized residential homes. ProVia also has solar installations at its Baltic, Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek facilities, however, Cherry Ridge is larger, and will generate 6.5 times the production of the other three combined
“We’ve always had great respect for ProVia, so it was an honor to partner with them on this project,” said Sheldon Stutzman, Solar Consultant with Paradise Energy Solutions. “ProVia continues to lead the way in manufacturing with highly-skilled people who bring innovative solutions to market. It’s very satisfying to be a part of that story.”
