Vineyard Haven, MA – The Safe Harbor Vineyard Haven marina and boatyard recently installed 32 solar modules/solar panels on top of its marina offices.
Battling the forecasted hurricane in mid-September, the solar energy system was installed and is engineered to withstand up to 140 mph winds.
“We are delighted to add solar energy to our Vineyard Haven marina. This new, robust system helps offset our energy usage to become increasingly neutral,” said Chris Scott, general manager of Safe Harbor Vineyard Haven and Safe Harbor Edgartown. “The solar installation is part of our organization’s focus on renewable energy and environmental stewardship.”
The solar project is as large as Eversource will currently permit and includes 32 modules, 400 watts each. The 12.8kW system can generate 16,752kWh annually.
Safe Harbor Vineyard Haven, an AMI Accredited Clean and Resilient Marina, is a full-service facility that includes slips, valet racks (in & out rack service), inside storage, mechanic shop, and fuel dock. With over 20 years of experience, Plymouth Solar Energy specializes in the installation and maintenance of commercial and residential solar and battery systems.
