NBCMA solar system ribbon cutting ceremony draws attention to the benefits of a solar PPA

Southampton, PA August 02, 2013


Moore Energy, a Southampton, PA based renewable energy design and installation firm, recently completed the installation of a 39,000 watt solar system at the Northampton, Bucks County Municipal Authority (NBCMA). The solar system was installed at no cost to the Authority through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), and will guarantee a 20 % reduction in utility costs, benefiting both the Authority and the Northampton Township ratepayers.

Over fifty attendees watched as the solar system, consisting of 150 WINAICO 260 W modules, was officially powered up at the July 10th ribbon cutting ceremony. Those in attendance included: Daniel Lapato, Deputy Director for the PA Department of Environmental Protection; Thomas Zeuner, Executive Director of the Northampton Bucks County Municipal Authority; the Northampton Bucks County Municipal Authority Board of Directors; as well as representatives from the Northampton Board of Supervisors, Senator Tommy Tomlinson's and State Representative Scott Petri's offices.

Jing Yu, Vice President of WINAICO USA, commented, "We are very excited to have partnered with Moore Energy on the solar system installed at the Authority. The system is guaranteed to produce over 1 million kWh over its guaranteed life of 25 years. Our high quality module will provide power to the residents of Northampton at no-cost to the Authority or rate-payers. This is a very unique project that we are very proud to have been a part of."
