MAR completes solar initiative

Valmeyer, IL, Jan. 24th, 2018 – MAR recently completed the installation of an on-site solar array.

The 300kw system will partially offset MAR’s electrical usage. The 30,000 square foot array will not only reduce grid electrical demand, it is also estimated to eliminate 482 metric tons of CO2 annually.

“After reviewing the options, this really turned out to be a wise decision for us.” stated Rick Roever, President of MAR. “This is a classic win-win. We can reduce our electrical bill with a 6 to 7 year ROI and the estimated carbon offset is equivalent to over 1,100 barrels of oil saved annually.”

Roever continued, “The installation of the 836 panels, sub-systems and controls was surprisingly quick. We are very pleased with how well this was executed. We are looking forward to years of reliable, cost-effective power generation from the system.”
