Atlantic Coast Freezers Stays Cool with a DuraTrack™ HZ Tracking System
2.2 MW site will meet 100% of warehouse energy needs
Albuquerque, NM – 5/1/12 – Atlantic Coast Freezers is staying cool by harnessing the power of the sun with a new 2.2 MW DuraTrack, HZ™ system that will completely power its warehouse operations with clean solar energy. Located in Vineland, NJ., the site was constructed by Evergreen and is owned and operated by KDC, which will provide Atlantic Coast Freezers with a levelized cost of energy for the duration of the project.
The DuraTrack, HZ™ system was chosen for the site, as Array Technologies provides the best return on investment in the tracking industry, maximizing both the land area and generating up to 25% more power than traditional fixed-rack applications.
The system will offset 2,344 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually, the equivalent of taking 460 passenger vehicles off the road every year for the lifetime of the project.
