A Rifkin

Production: 117,000 KW annually

Savings: $16,000 annually

Application: 230-watt

Facility: 68,000 sq’

A. Rifkin Co., the leading manufacturer of reusable fabric security bags and specialty products headquartered in Wilkes-Barre, PA, recently installed 434 solar panels on the roof of their 68,000 square foot manufacturing facility.

The 230-watt REC Solar Panels harvest sunlight and transfer energy through one centralized inverter with a maximum efficiency of 98.3 percent. The system will produce roughly 117,000 kilowatt hours per year saving the company an estimated $16,000 in electricity.

Efficiency is key, according to AJ Bittner, President of Keystone Energy Solar Services. “We estimate the company’s investment will pay for itself in four to five years. The truth is, it’s already paying for itself. The clean install on the roof reduces the HVAC load by shading the roof and decreases the demand charges by producing sustainable energy during the most expensive and peak usage moments which occur during the day”.
