Solar conversion involving more than 650 solar panels successfully completed at office building and training center

The Paramus, N.J.-based headquarters and training academy of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 164 successfully underwent a solar conversion involving more than 650 rooftop panels. Completed by Local 164 electricians certified in advanced photovoltaic (PV) technology, the new solar energy system serves as a working model available to contractors and customers alike for tours.

“Photovoltaic technology is here to stay, and Local 164 has embraced it as a means to save on operating costs while demonstrating our commitment to the environment and sustainable energy,” says Richard Dressel, Local 164 business manager. Projections indicate a total cost-savings of more than $323,000 over the next 10 years for both buildings.
