The 168 kW rooftop project at is a key piece of the family-run business’ sustainability practice. 100% of the annual electricity needs at Circle Furniture’s Acton warehouse will be met by the solar installation, and excess generation from the project will offset electric usage at the company’s Framingham, MA location.
Circle Furniture is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, a non-profit coalition that promotes sustainable practices among furniture manufacturers, retailers and consumers. With its switch to solar power, Circle Furniture helps to reduce the same amount of CO2 emissions as 124 acres of US forest in one year, while simultaneously insulating its business from electricity price fluctuations. An O&M contract with Nexamp will ensure the project delivers optimal results for Circle Furniture over the project’s lifecycle.
