Solar Wolf Energy completes 40-kW system for Rhode Island metalcaster
Solar Wolf Energy has completed a solar power project for Rhode Island metalcaster Cumberland Foundry Co. The foundry has a 25.6 kW system on the roof, while a nearby office supports its own 13.6 kW system.
Many industrial applications lack an eco-friendly look, so it is imperative to offset the environmental impact in other ways. Some of the foundry industry’s biggest criticisms are the enormous amounts of energy it takes to convert scrap steel and iron into a molten liquid ready to be poured into a mold. Cumberland Foundry does this neatly with electricity by means of electric induction melting. Now that electricity comes from solar panels on location.
