BURNDY continues to support the renewable energy market by designing, testing and offering new products that provide electrical connectivity to these markets. Whether it’s wind or solar, BURNDY has a team to stand behind the green initiatives our customers are focused on to help reduce carbon emissions and make our planet more environmentally safe.
With this dedicated support, BURNDY has put its money where its mouth is by installing a 24-Series AllSun TRACKERS System at its Littleton, N.H. facility. Completed in December 2011, this new solar panel system is designed to produce approximately 9,600 KWH of clean energy each year while offsetting approximately 12,600 lbs of CO2 emissions. With a net metering device, BURNDY will also see a credit from its local utility for those days when production exceeds demand. Rick Robicheau, Project Manager for BURNDY, points out: “This newly installed system is a triple-win for BURNDY as we are able to reduce our environmental footprint while supporting our ongoing green initiatives, and promote our products designed for these systems.”
When it comes to grounding and bonding, BURNDY is most commonly known for grounding systems such as HYGROUND and BURNDYWeld. However, with its recent acquisition of the Wiley WEEB technology, BURNDY now provides an additional bonding and grounding system specific to the solar pv industry. Used on the recent installation in Littleton N.H., the patented Wiley WEEB product offering provides an electrical bond between the solar modules and the mounting systems ensuring that the entire assembly is properly grounded. The BURNDY Littleton, N.H. facility is now the manufacturing operations base for the Wiley product offering.
