BURLINGTON, Vt.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Peck Electric Co. (“Peck”, or “the Company”), a leading commercial solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, today announced the completion of four solar projects in the first quarter of 2019.
Peck Electric holds a rich history as a family owned business in operation in Vermont for 47 years. The Company began operations as a traditional electric contractor and holds a wide range of capabilities to install electric equipment for a variety of end uses. Today, these core capabilities have developed the Company’s business in solar array installation, traditional electric, and data services. These projects range in size from several kilowatts for residential loads to multi-megawatt systems for large commercial and utility projects. The Company can deploy these capabilities to other large, rapidly growing renewable energy geographies and end markets; namely EV charging stations and energy storage.
As announced earlier this year, Peck has signed a definitive agreement to enter into a business combination with Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: JSYN). Upon the closing of the business combination expected in Q2 2019, Jensyn will be renamed “The Peck Company, Inc.” and its common stock is expected to be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "PECK.”
“Peck Electric is off to a strong start in 2019 as we completed four solar projects and have multiple projects currently under construction, ranging from multi megawatt utility scale projects to commercial rooftop solar arrays,” said Jeff Peck, Chief Executive Officer of Peck Electric. “With 30 MW of solar projects planned for 2019, we are uniquely positioned to bring more clean, renewable energy online and capitalize on the significant growth opportunities across the Northeast and other key solar installation markets.”
Peck Electric Completed Projects in Q1 2019:
- Completed a nearly 1.3 MW ground mount driven post solar array in Morrisville, VT for Encore Renewable Energy, a leading integrated clean energy services company focused on community-scale solar PV systems for the redevelopment of underutilized property. This project sited on property owned by Morrisville Water and Light, is the first solar array to be completed under the partnership between Encore Renewable Energy and the Vermont Public Power Supply Authority (“VPPSA”), which was formed to pursue the development, financing, and construction of approximately 10 MW of solar capacity on behalf of VPPSA’s municipal utility members. The project began producing power in May 2019.
- Completed a 1.3559 MW ballasted roof array in Windsor, Vermont. Peck Electric was the subcontractor for Norwich Solar Technologies, a provider of complete end-to-end solar solutions to businesses in Vermont and throughout New England. Norwich Solar Technologies’ mission is to advance the integration and deployment of affordable Solar Power to help New England companies improve their Triple Bottom Line – Financial, Social and Environmental. The array began producing power in May 2019.
- Completed the second 20.6 KW installment of a roughly 45 KW solar array on the roof of Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services in Burlington. The rooftop solar array began producing power in May 2019 and powers a significant portion of the building’s electricity.
- Completed a 12.8 KW solar roof top system for Union Bank’s new branch in Jericho, VT. This rooftop solar array began producing energy in May 2019 and will be used to offset a significant portion of the branch’s power needs.
Peck Electric Projects Currently Under Construction:
- Began construction of two projects for EDF Renewables Distributed Solutions, which originates, develops, builds, and operates customer-focused renewable energy projects that incorporate solar, storage, electric vehicle charging, and energy storage management. These utility scale projects for Green Mountain Power consist of a 7 MW driven ground mount system in Milton, VT and a 6.3 MW tacker ground mount in Ferrisburgh, VT. Peck Electric is responsible for the AC and DC wiring and other electrical services for both projects, which are expected to begin producing power in Q3 2019.
Continued construction of a nearly 7 MW project for Green Mountain
Power, serving as the subcontractor for Green Lantern Solar, a leading
provider of turnkey commercial-scale solar
solutions for municipalities, schools, businesses & healthcare. Peck Electric is responsible for installing all DC and AC wiring, installing inverters, and commissioning. The project in the Sand Hill Park neighborhood of Essex, VT is approximately 70% complete and is expected to begin producing power in Q3 2019.
- Began constructing a nearly 100 KW roof-mounted array on top of Red Clover Commons, a low-income retirement building in Brattleboro, VT. The power that the system produces will directly power the Red Clover building beginning in Q3 2019.
