January 19, 2012 – Newly installed at Burndy’s Littleton, N.H., facility is a 24-Series AllSun Trackers solar photovoltaic (PV) system, designed to produce approximately 9,600 KwH of energy each year while offsetting approximately 12,600 lbs. of CO2 emissions, explained the company.

The system was completed in December 2011, and features the Wiley WEEB product offering, which provides an electrical bond between the solar modules and the mounting systems ensuring that the entire assembly is properly grounded, it added.

Burndy continues to support the renewable energy market by designing, testing and offering new products that provide electrical connectivity to these markets,” it said. “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 a net metering device, Burndy will also see a credit from its local utility for those days when production exceeds demand.

“This 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,” said Rick Robicheau, project manager for Burndy.
