The system consists of 896 solar panels, each producing 22 watts yielding a total of 197.1 KW. The arrays are connected to a Central Inverter connected to the main electrical service. It is estimated that the roof installation will provide up to 41%of the annual electrical usage for All-Fill’s building and operations.

The rooftop system will reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to: 624,318 trees planted and 6,032,883 car miles saved--for a total CO2 reduction of 12,532,362 lbs. over a 25-year period.

Pennsylvania State Senator Jim Gerlach toured the plant and spoke to the All-Fill employees.
