Inside INdiana Business – Valmont cuts ribbon on Bristol solar array

BRISTOL, Ind. – Nebraska-based Valmont Industries cut the ribbon Thursday on a new solar array at its manufacturing facility in Bristol. The company, which makes sustainably-focused concrete utility poles, said the array will offset 100% of the plant’s electricity usage.

The company developed the solar array in partnership with Ameresco, a renewable energy company based in Framingham, Massachusetts.

The solar array includes 70 single-axis trackers from the company’s proprietary ConvertTM solar tracker solution. Valmont said the system follows the sun for optimized generation throughout the day and produces up to 25% more energy generation than fixed solar panels.
