Blackinton Solar Project

Blackinton Solar Project Details

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint Blackinton installed a solar field in 2016.  The solar field sits 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 reduced our electricity consumption from the grid by 50%!!  Our commitment to energy efficiency, cost containment, and environmental stewardship was the catalyst behind this project.

Below are pictures and videos documenting the progress of our project which began on August 8, 2016.
