Estes Express Lines and Dynamic Energy Complete 688 kW Rooftop Solar Project in Pennsylvania.
Estes Express Lines, which ranks No. 14 on Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers, and Dynamic Energy, a solar project developer, have announced the completion of a 688 kW solar project on the roof of Estes’ terminal in West Middlesex, Pa. The system is expected to produce 777,400 kilowatt hours of power annually, which will offset 56% of the West Middlesex terminal’s annual consumption, according to an Estes press release.
This project supported by a state grant from the Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority, or PEDA, is an independent public financing authority with a mission to finance clean, advanced energy projects in Pennsylvania.
“We greatly appreciate Dynamic Energy’s expertise with installing our system, and we are pleased to work with PEDA to generate clean, advanced energy within Pennsylvania,” said President Rob Estes. “Our selection from among such a strong pool of grant applicants says a lot about the long-term viability of this and similar future projects.”
“The West Middlesex solar project is a great example of what can be accomplished when forward thinking companies such as Estes make a commitment to renewable energy and efficiency,” said Geoffrey Bristow, regional energy program manager for the Department of Environmental Protection.
Estes previously partnered with Dynamic Energy to complete two solar installations totaling 583 kW at their terminals in Elkton, Md., and Baltimore.
“Selecting clean solar power for our West Middlesex terminal further demonstrates Estes’ good stewardship of the environment,” said Joe Ziadeh, project manager of Estes Express Lines.
