Tecta Solar, a division of Tecta America Corp., recently completed the installation of 533 kWp of solar photovoltaics for the Palmer Technology Center in Three Rivers, Mass. The roof-mounted project includes a ballasted 77-kWp array on the flat roof of the building, and a 456-kWp array mechanically attached to the sawtooth portions of the roofs.

In its first year of operation, the system is projected to generate a total of 620 MWh of energy, which is equivalent to powering 81 average Massachusetts homes for a year.

The system features Solectria inverters, Genmounts and Solar Backbone racking and ET Solar photovoltaic modules.

Tecta Solar managed every phase of the project, including design, engineering, procurement, construction, SREC registration and commissioning of the roof mounted project. "This project is unique in that it features solar panels mounted on a sawtooth roof.

Tecta Solar carefully designed the system to minimize shading," says Patrick Bollinger, project manager for Tecta Solar.

Tecta Solar has installed more than 6,150 kWp of solar photovoltaic systems in Massachusetts, including the first commercial solar photovoltaic system to be qualified for the Massachusetts RPS Solar Carve-Out and the largest rooftop solar photovoltaic project to date.
