Structural steel and miscellaneous metals company Shepard Steel announced that a 611 kW DC solar energy system installed on its headquarters by Solect Energy of Hopkinton went live on July 23 and has exceeded production estimates in the months since. In the first three months of operation, the 1,674-panel solar energy system generated approximately 200 MWh of electricity, enough to power the company’s operations into the winter.

Shepard Steel’s headquarters is a onestory 100,000 sq ft building at 110 Meadow Street in Hartford in Connecticut. The manufacturer partnered with Solect Energy of Hopkinton and Eversource to install the panels on an area covering 80,000 square feet of the roof. The solar system is monitored around the clock by Solect, which uses a cloud-based monitoring platform to measure the system’s output in real-time, ensuring it operates at maximum capacity. Solect’s monitoring also provides historical data and projections on future production that take into account regional weather patterns.
