CARTERET — Code Environmental Services, a leading environmental and hazardous waste remediation firm in Carteret, has completed the installation of a 220-kilowatt rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system.
Designed, engineered and constructed by Manasquan-based Solis Partners, the system, which will offset approximately 70 percent of Code Environmental’s electricity consumption, is installed on the roof of its 50,000-square-foot corporate headquarters building in Carteret.
“We’re pleased to announce the completion of the solar installation at Code Environmental,” said Jamie Hahn, cofounder and managing director at Solis Partners. “This rooftop solar PV System showcases Code’s sustainability efforts and will provide consistent financial savings for years to come.”
Built with 1,104 solar PV panels, the solar system will produce approximately 250,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity in the first year of operation. This equates to the reduction of more than 385,000 pounds of CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of offsetting the power demand of 22 residential homes or removing 34 cars from the road each year.
“Installing solar just made sense for us,” said John Tomassetti, vice president at Code Environmental. “We’re saving money on electricity costs and we are being environmentally responsible.”
