The system installed on the roof of Altus' warehouse is designed to generate 152,517kWh of electricity a year and Photovoltaic Grid-tied (PV) system comprises 456 pieces of REC-255Wp solar panels.
Swire said it would produce savings of $39,000 a year on Altus’ electricity bills, with monthly savings of 45.1%. The system cost $198,400 and has a lifespan of 25 years.

This project is a milestone achievement for us as this long term investment will significantly reduce our carbon footprint and electrical consumption,” said Michael Ellsworth, ceo of Altus Logistics.
