MEC has been working in the renewable energy markets since the 1990s, when we first participated in an electric car implementation study using solar panels and recharge stations. With today’s demands for renewable energies, we continue to pioneer the field with a number of projects including bio-fuel plants, wind turbines, and solar thermal and solar PV installations.
In the spring of 2008, the installation of 528 photovoltaic panels on the roof of a manufacturing building was completed. This solar project is capable of producing 100,320 watts of direct current (DC) power, which is then inverted to approximately 85,000 wat ts of alternating current (AC) at 480 VAC.
In April 2012 Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) began installation of a roof-mounted solar system on the Milton Academy ACC Building. The project consists of the design and installation of a 192.27 kWp solar power system. The system will operate parallel to the utility supply, and will offset the amount of daily power sourced by the facility.
Groveland Solar Project is a 3.6 MW solar farm on approximately 25 acres of land located in Groveland, Massachusetts. Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) self-performed all the duct work, cable pulling, building racking systems, terminating cable wires including six inverters and the 15 kV power, and installed 12,672 solar modules.
Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) crews installed a 2.6MW ground mounted solar photovoltaic system in Northbridge, MA, on a site previously used for farmland. Working as a subcontractor to Gehrlicher Solar America Corp., MEC installed a total of 9,064 solar modules.
Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) began work on a 2.1MW solar project in West Greenwich, Rhode Island in April 2013. This was the first solar project installation completed by MEC during the winter, and snow and ice were a major concern when it came to safety. Weather also played a major factor in how much trench could be open at one time, because snow could melt in the trench and freeze any installed conduit. Correct ordering of materials and scheduling crews were instrumental in the completion of this project on time.
