Lawson Electric installs 200kW solar field at Brown Stove Works

Greentech Lead America: Brown Stove Works, a manufacturer
of residential cooking appliances in Cleveland, Tennessee, has completed the
interconnection of a 199.64kW solar field to the Cleveland Utilities Board
power grid.

Lawson Electric, the full-service electrical contracting
company, has installed the solar system on property adjacent to Brown Stove
Works’ manufacturing facility.

The solar array is comprised of 868 – Canadian
Solar 230-watt modules, two – Kaco 100kW inverters atop a Cablofil Legrand
Fas Rack ground mount PV support system. This is the largest solar array in the
Cleveland area. The system connects directly into the Cleveland Utilities Board
power grid.

“It has been a real pleasure working with the people at
Brown Stove Works, and I’m proud to say that they are now the owner of the
largest solar array in the Cleveland area. This 200kW ground mount system was
another successful project that we were able to deliver on time, despite a lot
of rain delays this winter. I hope this is the start of a long relationship
with the folks at Brown Stove Works” said Andrew Orman, project manager for
Lawson Electric.

The solar system is expected to generate over 250,000 kilowatt
hours of clean, renewable energy for local businesses and homes each year
enough to supply the needs of 50 average homes. Throughout the twenty-five year
of lifetime, the solar field will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 4,500
metric tons of CO², equivalent to planting an additional 180,000 trees.

Brown Stove Works has constructed this system under the
TVA Generation Partners Program. Lawson Electric Company has completed the
engineering and solar installation within six months of project approval by
Tennessee Valley Authority.

“Brown Stove Works is pleased to be able to participate
in a program that generates clean, sustainable energy for our community and is
fortunate to have partnered with Lawson Electric and Tennessee Valley
Authority,” said Matthew Brown, executive vice president of Brown Stove Works.
