ALL-FILL “GOES GREEN” WITH SOLAR PANEL CONVERSION
August 3, 2010
All-Fill and RMK Solar announce the completion and switchover of a 197.1 KW roof-based solar
system to recognize the importance of preserving our natural resources and move further along
towards energy independence.
The system consists of 896 solar panels, each producing 22 watts yielding a total of 197.1 KW.
The arrays are connected to a Central Inverter connected to the main electrical service. It is estimated
that the roof installation will provide up to 41% of the annual electrical usage for All-Fill’s
building and operations. The rooftop system will reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to:
Car - 6,032,883 miles NOT driven
Trees - 624,318 trees planted
For a total CO2 reduction of 12,532,362 lb. over a 25 year period.
Congressional delegate Jim Gerlach recently visited All-Fill to witness the switchover to solar energy from All-Fill’s rooftop array of solar panels. Here, All-Fill President Glenn Edginton (left) looks on while Congressman Gerlach inspects auger manufacturing.
