Headquartered in Edison, New Jersey, with offices in London, China, and around the world, C&A Global engages in the design, manufacturing and distribution of consumer products and photographic equipment. The company offers one of the industry’s most extensive and diverse inventories of products, ranging from innovative electronics to intelligent housewares to fun gadgets.
Knowing that they consume enormous amounts of electricity, the company seized the opportunity to build a plant that would offset most of their utility bills and enable them to take advantage of the tax benefits and SREC programs for a strong return on their investment.
The solar panel system at C&A Global consists of 3,278 modules and has a peak power of 999.79 kW DC. Mounted atop the company’s 250,000 sq. ft. headquarters, this plant is expected to generate 1,267,887 kWh a year—enough energy to power more than 115 homes annually. The carbon sequestered by choosing this renewable energy source is comparable to the CO2 removed by 1,171 acres of US forest in one year.
