Pioneer Heating & Air expanded the solar PV system at its Mill Branch Lane facility. The company has increased its solar energy system to 47.48 kW, effectively doubling the solar energy it generates. The system was commissioned and has been producing power since Sept. 8, 2016.
With the combination of solar radiation exposure and high quality modules, the addition of the 74 module system is estimated to produce 28,491 kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy annually. The system designer and installer, Green Earth Solar, LLC estimates that the system will reduce emissions by 30 lbs. of nitrogen oxides, 70 lbs. of sulfur dioxide and 41,603 lbs. of carbon dioxide each year. Through TVA's Green Power Provider Program, the grid tied solar PV system will also generate income every month to help offset the electricity bill for Pioneer Heating & Air.
