Parallel Products, a sustainability and recycling company located in New Bedford, Mass., recently completed its Duchaine Boulevard project, a center for processing and technology development, on a 130-acre campus in New Bedford.

The company’s main goal when creating the center was to offset its carbon footprint as it processes 3,710 tons of aluminum, 3,892 tons of plastic and 50,000 tons of glass annually. Photovoltaic panels were attached to the standing-seam metal panel roof system using an S-5! PVKIT®—a direct-attach™ rail-less solar solution and S-5-V™ Mini clamps.

The PV panels have increased the facility’s solar capacity by 1.9 megawatts, offsetting the company’s carbon footprint and exceeding what it consumes on-site.
