Crystal Rock’s Solar System Up and Running
Crystal Rock, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vermont Pure Holdings, announced this week that the company’s 300kW solar photovoltaic system is now operational and generating electricity.
The installation of around 1,700 solar panels– on the rooftop of the company’s Watertown, Conn. bottling facility– is expected to supply about 28 percent of the facility’s total electrical needs.
When the facility does not need electricity, such as weekends and holidays, it plans to sell that electricity to the grid at the retail rate.
The installation is expected to produce more than 300,000 kW of power annually, with an estimated 124 metric-ton reduction in GHG emissions.
Vermont Pure Holdings paid $2.2 million for the solar installation project, of which up to $1.3 million will be provided by a grant from On-site Renewable Distributed Generation Program through the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, a ratepayer fund administered by Connecticut Innovations.
