Conti, a leading solar energy installation company, has achieved a milestone in rapid solar foundation installation to successfully complete a 4.23 MW solar carport project.
The goal of the solar project, which was installed at a large facility for a major vehicle auction corporation in Framingham, Massachusetts, was to save on electricity costs and reduce reliance on the grid. The auction company can now expect to generate approximately 88 percent of their power from solar for this facility.
The foundation work was completed in just 30 days, 50 percent faster than is typical in industry. Taking one canopy at a time, foundations were drilled, rebar and anchor bolts installed and the foundation poured. Then the site was restored and given back to the owner before engineers moved on to the next canopy.
“Being able to deliver a superior end result, that is done safely and efficiently, has and will continue to be Conti’s number one priority,” said Sean Harrington, Regional Manager for Conti’s Massachusetts Operations. “This project cements Conti’s reputation as the go-to installer for solar carport projects across the United States, having installed over 30 MW of carports within the last 5 years,” Harrington continued.
Conti finished the project on time and on budget, with minimal disruption to the business’s daily operations, a testament to the company’s expertise and professionalism in the solar energy installation market.
