Aug. 10, 2012: Onset Installs Solar Photovoltaic System on Its Headquarters Building

August 10, 2012
BOURNE, Mass. — Onset, a leading supplier of data loggers, has announced the installation of a new 225-kW, roof-mounted solar photovoltaic system at the company’s Cape Cod, Mass., headquarters facility. The 936-panel system, among the largest of its kind on Cape Cod, is expected to produce nearly 50 percent of the company’s annual electricity usage.

“We’re very proud of this installation,” said Justin Testa, Onset’s president. “It’s part of our initiative to be more efficient, to be sustainable, and to be more friendly to the environment. Beyond that, it makes great economic sense, particularly given the high energy-consuming production equipment we use to manufacture our industry-leading data loggers and monitoring stations on site.”

The solar panels were manufactured in the United States by SCHOTT Solar, and installed by Beaumont Solar Co. of New Bedford, Mass. To date, the system has generated nearly 30,000 kilowatt hours of electricity, and is expected to pay for itself in approximately three years.
