547-kW solar array installed on Goodwill training center in Virginia

RER Energy Group developed a rooftop solar array on the Roanoke Jobs Campus building in Roanoke, Virginia for Goodwill Industries of the Valleys. The new rooftop solar array is one of several solar projects that RER Energy Group has developed for Goodwill organizations and the first acquired by Standard Solar.

“This is our second solar array. Solar makes economic sense for Goodwill, and it aligns with our value of stewardship,” said Jackson Green, chief financial and compliance officer for Goodwill Industries of the Valleys. “The new array will save us money and be a long-term solution to rising energy costs. The money saved will provide for more opportunities for future investment in people, programs and new ventures which will strengthen our mission and the communities we serve. We are committed to reducing the carbon footprint of Goodwill.”

The 547.92 kW project is expected to generate 90% of the building’s onsite electricity needs, producing 742 MWh of electricity annually.

“We applaud Goodwill Industries of the Valleys for joining other Goodwills that have already gone solar and demonstrating how solar supports the movement’s overall mission of sustainability,” said Jim Kurtz, President RER.

Eric Partyka, director of business development at Standard Solar, added: “Adding this project to our commercial and industrial portfolio is a meaningful step in helping non-profits, including Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, benefit from the power of solar and controlled energy costs. Adopting solar technology allows Goodwill to reduce its carbon footprint and enhance its mission to ensure every individual can acquire the skills and supports needed to earn a good job and advance into a sustainable career.”
