Blackinton Solar Installation

​We have been in business since 1914 and have always used Blackinton for our badge needs.  First and most importantly the sales staff.. timely and professional.  Secondly is customer service, they have always been the friendliest of any vendor I have worked with.  And finally the quality of the products has always been impeccable, I have never had to return an item sold to one of my customers..."

 Solar Project Details


In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint on the world Blackinton has undertaken a major solar field installation project.  The solar field will sit on 2.1 acres of our 29.28 acres of property at our corporate headquarters.  The installation is a 498.96 KW system consisting of 1,584 solar panels.  This initiative will reduce our electricity consumption from the grid by 50%!!  Our commitment to energy efficiency, cost containment, and environmental stewardship is the catalyst behind this project. 

Watch as this exciting installation evolves.  Below are pictures and videos documenting the progress of our project which began on August 8, 2016.
