McElroy Metal adds solar power to another manufacturing plant – pv magazine USA


McElroy Metal, a Louisiana-based manufacturer of metal components, announced that it has completed a solar installation at the company’s manufacturing facility in Sunnyvale, Texas, marking the fourth McElroy installation to adopt solar power.

The company also has solar installations at its factories in Peachtree, Georgia, Adelanto, California and Clinton, Illinois.

Spier Commercial & Industrial of New Braunfels, Texas undertook the project, installing a 165 kW grid-connected photovoltaic system at McElroy Metal’s Sunnyvale plant. Seraphim Energy panels were installed on a recent addition to the facility, which was topped with 238T symmetrical standing seam panels from McElroy Metal.

The panels were attached to the standing seam roof with products from S-5 !, specially designed for metal standing seam roofs. S-5 systems! use clamps designed to grip and secure to metal roofs, both on the edge and on the surface, rather than penetrating the roof, which would seriously compromise a seam roof.

The project includes 352 470 W Seraphim solar panels, which will generate approximately 261,574 kWh each year. It is estimated that the system will reduce the energy consumption of the facility’s grid by 46%.
