Communicating the Benefits of Solar Energy

Barrett Outdoor Communications, West Haven, Connecticut, has developed a reputation for building and maintaining interstate bulletins of only the highest quality.  Their growth and reputation is attributed to the dedication to quality service for both their clients and the communities where they operate. The company’s signs are strategically located along the "Gateway to New England", the corridor in Connecticut where Routes I-95, I-91, CT-34, CT-8 and CT-25 converge.

 

Barrett Outdoor has also made a significant commitment to the environment and Connecticut’s energy independence.  The company has installed 105 photovoltaic panels to provide electricity to its headquarters and operations in West Haven.  During peak energy production, the system will reduce the facility’s need for grid power by 60%.  Power from the sun is produced long after business hours and on weekends.  Thus, the surplus power is utilized by Barrett’s neighbors and reduces the demand for increased high voltage transmission capacity and traditional energy production. The excess power that Barrett produces is credited to Barrett’s electric bill through net-metering.
