NRG Solar Energy Project
J.K. Scanlan Company, LLC completed the construction of a 1MW Solar Array at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA. The $8 million project consisted of building a structural steel solar canopy within the three main spines of the North Retail area as well as installing roof mounted solar panels at three rooftops within the Box South Retail area. Primary work included in the scope of work was steel, glass, roofing, concrete and electrical.
As the bulk of the work was completed within an operating outdoor mall, during the peak season of the summer, the majority of the work was done at night. A high degree of coordination was required between ours team and the property owner. The first spine was completed in time for the Patriots 2012 home opener.
Also included in the project are three interactive kiosks that the public can use to understand the story of NRG and renewable power. We also installed four Helio structures which showcase some alternative solar panel types and also serve as an educational tool highlighting the way solar energy works.
