NEWARK, DE (May 23, 2012)—Motech Americas LLC, a solar company with a 20-year heritage of manufacturing the highest quality solar panels, announced today that Ray Angelini, Inc. (RAI®) has won its East Coast Installation of the Year award for its solar photovoltaic (PV) system installations for the Long Branch School District, Long Branch, NJ. For a project to qualify as a Motech Installation of the Year it must embody innovative design, quality workmanship, efficient installation and best-in-class safety practices.

RAI utilized Motech IM60 235W solar modules manufactured in Delaware to successfully complete the design and installation of 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) system installations for the district—eight roof arrays and two canopy arrays. The largest array—559 kW consisting of 2,379 panels—was installed on the roof of the high school. There were seven other locations throughout the district where RAI installed solar panels, including a 100 kW installation at Anastasia Elementary School, a 62 kW installation at Gregory Elementary School, 156 kW at Lenna Conrow Elementary School, 101 kW at Audrey Clark Elementary School, 773 kW at Long Branch Middle School, 189 kW at Morris Avenue School, and 14 kW at the Long Branch Board of Education.

Many of the school district buildings have flat roofs that receive direct, unobstructed sunlight allowing the panels to gather and generate optimal solar power. In addition to the schools roofs being outfitted with solar panels, there are also solar canopies in two school parking lots. The system will produce over 2,357 kW annually, providing approximately 25% of the peak energy demand of the school district, saving over $421,949 per year in electricity costs. By utilizing the solar panels, the district is also receiving solar renewable energy credits, which could generate additional funds for the schools. All of these locations are now generating solar energy as the panels have been activated.

“We are proud to provide solar modules to an organization as rich in solar experience and knowledge as RAI,” stated Derick Botha, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Motech Americas. “RAI cares about their customers and the community. We at Motech appreciate the opportunity to work with such a professional organization.”

RAI has also provided the district with kiosks that educate students about the solar energy process.

School’s Cost-Saving Solar Installation Turns Into Educational Tool for Students

Local Contractor Designs and Builds Solar Demo Shed
for Science Projects

COLUMBUS, NJ (January 23, 2012)—Just two years after the ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of a solar energy system at the Northern Burlington Regional School District here, teachers at the school are using a new solar demonstration shed for science lessons.

Ray Angelini, Inc., Sewell, NJ, designer and builder of the 2009 193.5 kW solar energy roof installation, consisting of 864 Sharp® modules, at the school also built a solar demonstration shed at the school’s request.

“The shed has three 235-watt solar panels on its roof and electrical components inside,” said Jason Kaplan, project manager, Ray Angelini, Inc.  “A meter on the shed provides information such as voltage, amps and the energy captured from the sun, which is stored in batteries—it’s all DC powered.”

On completion, Kaplan provided a brief tour of the solar demonstration shed to geometry and science teachers and students, school administrators and local police.

“Some of the students asked if they could charge their cell phones from the solar shed,” said Kaplan.  “The facilities people were interested in adding lights to the shed.  Really, you can charge or do a number of different things with this.”

RAI serves public and private clients in NJ, PA, DE and MD in various industries, including transit, data centers, schools, universities, government, industrial plants, medical facilities, and more.  Originally established in 1975 by Ray Angelini as an electrical contracting company, today RAI is a full service design/build/maintenance solar energy company.
