MBK Tape Solutions Installs Soliant Energy Rooftop Solar System in Los Angeles
October 6, 2010 -- Soliant Energy, the leader in concentrated photovoltaic solar energy systems for commercial rooftops, announced today, that MBK Tape Solutions, a global leader in fabrication of adhesive tape and flexible materials has installed the Soliant CPV rooftop solar system on its 17,000 square foot headquarters building in Chatsworth in northwest Los Angeles. The system, designed to maximize energy output at the lowest possible cost, generates 10kW of electricity, is grid-connected and now supplies much of the energy consumed by MBK Tape Solutions.
“We’ve been supplying the renewable energy industry with adhesive products for many years and this is one way we can support that industry and demonstrate our own environmental stewardship,” said Jeff Kaminski, president of MBK Tape Solutions. “As we did the ROI analysis with Soliant we realized it made excellent business sense as well.”
“The city of Los Angeles has millions of square feet of unused commercial rooftop space. Our concentrated solar panel solutions are the ideal way to turn those rooftops into energy producing power plants. We believe this is just the beginning in what will be many similar installations across Los Angeles and beyond,” said Dr. Terry Bailey, president and chief executive of Soliant Energy.
