SEWELL, NJ (December 8, 2009)—Ray Angelini, Inc, (RAI), a commercial solar design build and electrical contracting and testing firm, is featuring the Atlantic City Convention Center Solar Array—one of the largest single-roof power array installations in the country—in its exhibit at the annual Ecobuild America® conference and exhibition, open today through Thursday, December 10, 2009, at the Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C.
RAI completed the 2.36-megawatt rooftop solar power system in December 2008, which covers two-thirds of the main convention center roof or about 290,000 sq. ft. and consists of 13,486 solar panels.
A total savings of nearly $4.4 million in electricity costs is expected over the 20-year power purchase agreement between the convention center and PEPCO. In addition, the generation of renewable energy will reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere by approximately 2,349 tons, which is equivalent to the emissions spewed from 390 passenger vehicles on the road in a year or the consumption of 4,956 barrels of oil per year.
Other projects completed by RAI include the Epuron-Exelon Solar Energy Field, Morrisville, PA—a 3 megawatt fixed ground array consisting of 17,160 photovoltaic modules on a 16-acre site.
Currently, RAI is working with the Government Services Administration (GSA) on site at the Veteran’s Administration Center, Philadelphia, PA to provide a new Energy Star-rated roof and solar array, a project that is the direct result of GSA’s commitment to green design and construction and the agency’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Founded in 1974 by Raymond J. Angelini, RAI is recognized as one of the region’s 2009 Best Places to Work sponsored by Philadelphia Business Journal. To learn more about Ray Angelini, Inc., please visit www.raiservices.com or call the Sewell, NJ-based headquarters at 856-228-5566.
