The law firm of Archer & Greiner P.C., a leader in alternative and renewable energy law,

represents The McGraw-Hill Companies Inc. on numerous aspects of the recently approved solar
energy project on McGraw-Hill's East Windsor, N.J., corporate campus. The project is the
largest privately-owned, net-metered solar project in the Western Hemisphere.
Archer & Greiner has successfully handled permitting, land use approvals, tax issues, the
Power Purchase Agreement and the Solar Land Lease, as well as other contracts, for McGraw-
Hill, a global leader in financial information and education.

50-acre parcel adjacent to McGraw-Hill' s two office buildings, including a 180,000-square foot
data center. The energy produced by the project is expected to reduce McGraw-Hill' s annual
global carbon emissions by the equivalent of about 10 percent and significantly lower the
company' s long-term electricity costs.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
