Service Tire Truck Centers Installs Solar Energy Panels
STTC, which provides major brand new tires, Michelin retreads and tire related services to the transportation industry from Virginia to New Hampshire, has partnered with Hopkinton-based Solect Energy to install a 322 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy system at their Millbury, MA Michelin Retread Plant. A total of 1,313 solar PV panels were installed on the roof of STTC’s 58,000-square-foot facility to help defray approx 26% of the electricity expenses of their modern MRT retread plant.
The 60-year-old, family-owned business has a history of “giving back.” “Choosing to go solar was another way that we can give back, this time to the environment,” said business partner Walt Dealtrey. “The financial incentives as well as the green aspects of solar were very compelling, and Solect has been a terrific partner throughout the process.” Being in the retread business has made STTC a green company long before it was a mainstream word. Solar is nothing new to STTC as a 150KW array was installed atop STTC’s Millville NJ retread plant in 2006.
"STTC is an excellent example of a business that can take advantage of all of the benefits of a solar renewable energy solution,” said Scott Howe, business development partner at Solect. “The federal and state incentives combined with the electricity savings make solar a very compelling proposition for businesses."
STTC has 43 commercial locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maryland, New York, and Virginia.
