PALMYRA, New York (February 16, 2016) – Jrlon Inc, located in Palmyra, New York has recently installed a 200 kW (kilowatt) solar system with Paradise Energy Solutions, as part of an effort to control costs and reduce energy consumption. The six hundred sixty-six panel solar system, which covers 18% of Jrlon’s current electric usage, was the largest of three capital improvements they have recently made to their facility. The other improvements include installing a highly energy efficient main compressor and completely switching to LED lighting throughout the facility.
“In trying to compete in a global market, you have to be able to control your costs. After seeing our monthly energy costs continue to increase, we knew we had to do something about it,” explains Brandon Redmond, Owner and COO of Jrlon. The solar system is expected to payback in about 3.5 years and will provide electricity for decades to come.
Paradise Energy Solutions is a NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) approved installer and Jrlon took advantage of a NYSERDA rebate through the New York State program. The rebate added up to over $120,000 toward the installation cost of the solar system.
“The system has been extremely easy to monitor and essentially maintenance free. When you take into consideration the relatively quick payback and the fact that we invested this into the future of our business, the project was an absolute no-brainer.”
