EnterSolar has completed a 185 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system using Motech Americas panels for Ultrachem, Inc., a leading specialty lubricant compounder. The system was installed on the roof of Ultrachem's Corporate Headquarters located in New Castle, Delaware and will generate enough energy to serve the entire annual electricity needs of the Ultrachem facility.

"We are pleased to announce the completion of this major renewable energy project," said Bob Whiting, President of Ultrachem. "Not only will the system improve the environment by reducing our reliance on traditional fossil fuels, it also relieves our energy burden from the electric grid during peak hours which benefits the community."

The project is participating in the Delaware SREC Pilot Program and is interconnected to the New Castle Municipal Services Commission's utility system.

The state-of-the-art solar photovoltaic system features Delaware-manufactured Motech solar panels, two central inverters, and a string-level data acquisition system.

The system is expected to produce over 200,000 kilowatt-hours per year, or roughly the amount of electricity needed to power 30 homes annually. This equates to the reduction of more than 270,000 pounds of carbon emissions each year.

Derick Botha, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Motech Americas, commented: "We are very pleased to be working with EnterSolar providing panels manufactured in Delaware. It is encouraging to see responsible companies in our state taking initiative to support local manufacturing while helping the environment and creating value for themselves."

"By installing their new solar PV system, Ultrachem has further established themselves as a community business leader while demonstrating how companies can 'do well, by doing good'," said Paul Ahern, President of EnterSolar.

"In addition to supporting the environment, Ultrachem will also see a significant reduction in electricity costs while mitigating future power price increases".

"We were delighted to have had the Ultrachem solar project selected to participate in the new Delaware SREC Pilot Program," said Steve Burns, EnterSolar Project Manager, "this program provided our client with the long-term cash flow visibility they required to make a prudent capital investment decision."

This was EnterSolar's first major commercial solar project in Delaware. Installation services were provided by New Generation Energy and Development utilizing a workforce comprised primarily of Delaware residents.
