Buckman's Ski and Snowboard Shops Go Green with Nearly 3,000 Roof-Mounted Solar Panels on Pottstown, PA Headquarters
POTTSTOWN, Pa. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Buckman's Ski and Snowboard Shops announced the construction of a 620 kilowatt solar energy system at their corporate headquarters in Pottstown, PA. Made up of nearly 3,000 roof-mounted solar panels, this system will convert sunlight into electricity and supply power to Buckman's warehouse and production facilities. The project is being developed by one of Pennsylvania's leading electrical construction and renewable energy firms, Metro-Tek Electrical Services.
The solar energy system will produce 700,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a year enabling Buckman's to offset 850,000 pounds of carbon dioxide yearly which is equivalent to conserving over 40,000 gallons of gasoline annually. When completed, Buckman's solar energy system will be one of the largest in Pennsylvania.
