Commercial Distributed Solar Array | Rooftop System | Alabama Power

Renewvia’s rooftop system, one of the largest commercial distributed rooftop solar array in the state of Alabama, includes 2,296 solar photovoltaic panels providing 746 kW of power to SteelFab’s Roanoke steel fabrication plant, a major economic driver for the eastern Alabama town that is home to around 6,000 people. SteelFab began partnering with Renewvia in 2016 to deploy an innovative strategy to reduce energy costs at rural factories and offset its overall carbon footprint. The Alabama facility is the fourth steel fabrication plant to be upgraded by Renewvia, which installed similar solar arrays at SteelFab facilities in Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia. The four rooftop systems are altogether generating 1.67 MW of solar power, cutting their combined power costs by nearly 50 percent and offsetting over 1,500 metric tons of carbon annually.
