Paradise Energy Solutions installs 1-MW rooftop array for Levin Furniture
Paradise Energy Solutions has completed a 1 MW solar panel at the warehouse and headquarters of family-owned Levin Furniture in Smithton, Pennsylvania.
“We are proud to have completed this newest solar system,” said Robert Levin, company president. “This project continues our investment in the company and contributes to several important eco-friendly practices at Levin’s.”
The new 1 MW array is the fifth rooftop solar project completed by Levin’s. The local, family-owned company is considered the first furniture company in the United States to use solar energy with its installation in 2004 at its Monroeville location. Levin Furniture was recognized by the State of Pennsylvania in 2008 with its “Waste Watchers Award” presented to organizations that have shown leadership in recycling and other environmental initiatives.
As the largest solar installation for a retail company in Western Pennsylvania, the system will generate 70% of the distribution center’s annual electricity needs. Solbridge Energy Advisors was engaged as a project consultant, broker and owner’s representative. Solbridge worked with Levin leadership on all aspects of the project. Paradise Energy Solutions built the solar panel.
