Largest Solar Project in Pacific Northwest Delivers High Energy
Production, Faster ROI
BURNABY, British Columbia, Feb. 28 /CNW/ -- Day4 Energy Inc. (TSX: DFE),
a leading manufacturer of high performance, cost-effective solar electric
modules, today announced that its highly efficient solar modules will be
deployed in a new solar installation at the Portland Habilitation Center
Northwest (PHCNW), a non-profit organization that trains and employs
individuals with disabilities throughout the states of Oregon and Washington.
The innovative green building project will feature 4,830 advanced Day4 Energy
48MC solar panels, making the 870-kilowatt solar installation the largest
solar electric system in the Pacific Northwest.
"We are very proud to have been chosen to participate in this project
based on our ability to deliver a premium level solution to PHCNW's electrical
power generation needs." said George Rubin, president and COO of Day4 Energy.
"The importance of this project goes far beyond the additional sales that it
generates for the company. Following our successful completion of a one
megawatt project with German utility EnBW, this project in Portland marks a
significant next step for Day4 Energy as our largest PV system in North
America at this time."
Day4 Energy 48MC photovoltaic panels were incorporated into PHCNW's
design for the new facility from its earliest planning stages.
"From the start, our priority with this facility was to include the most
advanced elements of green building; specifically, with this solar electric
system we were searching for an all-in-one package of high power output,
product quality, strong field performance and sleek, modern aesthetics," said
designer and architect Ernie Munch. "We selected Day4's modules because they
delivered precisely that, and we approached the entire project with Day4
Energy in mind from the outset."
"As a non-profit organization, we recognize the importance of being able
to direct our dollars toward education and training rather than infrastructure
and high energy bills. With Day4 we have a cutting edge technology solution
that allows us to address this issue in the most efficient and economic manner
without sacrificing aesthetics or long-term performance" said John Murphy,
president of PHCNW. "By providing secure access to clean, renewable energy for
decades to come, this solar energy system from Day4 Energy enables immediate
and on-going economic savings while directly supporting the sustainable growth
of our organization."
The highly efficient Day4 48 MC solar module is based on the company's
proprietary Day4 Electrode technology, an innovative approach to module
construction that directly replaces the decades-old soldering connection
methods to improve module efficiency, decrease costs and drive continued
innovation in solar technology development
