Largest roof-mounted solar project in Franklin County installed at Valley Steel Stamp (VSS)
Valley Steel Stamp (VSS), a precision machine shop specializing in complex CNC machined components, now has the largest roof-mounted solar project in Franklin County. The 550 kW solar project, installed by PV Squared Solar, is on two buildings at Valley Steel Stamp’s headquarters in Greenfield.
“We applaud VSS for their commitment to powering their operations with clean renewable energy generated directly from the roof of their facility, and for choosing to work with a Greenfield based solar installer,” said Josh Hilsdon, Commercial Design & Sales Consultant at PV Squared. “PV Squared has completed more than 140 solar installations in Greenfield, with a combined capacity of more than 1.15 MW. The 550 kW VSS solar projects has increased the total solar capacity we’ve installed in Greenfield by nearly 50%,” added Hilsdon. PV Squared Solar completed this installation while following socially distant safety protocols.
The 550 kW solar system will account for an annual environmental offset of 417 metric tons of CO2, which is equivalent to annual CO2 emissions from 460,000 pounds of coal burned and 47,000 gallons of gasoline consumed.
PV Squared is a local leader in the field of solar design, installation, and maintenance. The worker-owned cooperative provides solar and battery storage solutions to homeowners, business owners, commercial property owners, and farmers in western Massachusetts and surrounding regions.
