BlueSel Commercial Solar Case Studies

Titcomb Brothers Manufacturing

"The installation of my first 100 KWatt solar array went well and we are pleased with the installation. The BlueSel estimates for solar power production were accurate and we are very happy with the recommended panels.

We are so pleased, in fact, that we are having BlueSel install an additional 178 kilowatt system on another of our buildings"
Ted Titcomb
Titcomb Brothers Manufacturing

Project Results

  1. The on-time installation did not interfere with Titcomb production operations
  2. BlueSel-projected electricity saving realized from the first month onward
  3. Titcomb expects to achieve the system payback in less than 4 years (per BlueSel projections)
  4. Power production and energy savings prompted Titcomb to contract with BlueSel for an additional 178 kilowatt system.
  5. Total projected Cumulative Positive Cash Flow for both systems is over $1,200,000 – over 25 years

Project Goals

Titcomb’s manufacturing equipment uses large amounts of electricity during daylight hours. The electric bill accounts for significant % of their production cost.
The goal was to save money on electricity costs and generate a significant amount of their own electricity via the solar system. After the investment payback period – this electricity would be a direct savings (not using that amount from the utility grid) and would protect against the expected rising utility electricity costs over the 25 year projected life of the system.

BlueSel Solution

An initial 100 kilowatt solar system was install on the commercial building roof.

  • BlueSel completed the project quickly so Titcomb benefited from 2X higher SREC incentives for the array (the incentive deadline date was approaching)
  • The SunPower panels provided high electricity production for the array size (what the roof would accommodate and the Titcom project budget)
  • The system included “Net Metering” sale of excess production back to the utility

It is co-owned by Wally Cole of Arlington, MA and Michael Tanghe of Hyannis, MA. Mike and Wally are also co-founders of BlueSel Home Solar Inc. Together, these two companies have installed over 550 solar installations with over 5.5 megawatts of solar energy system capacity.

BlueSel Solar was the first SunPower® Master Dealer in Massachusetts. The SunPower Master Dealer program is a “by invitation only”. Out of the 1,200 SunPower dealers around the world, only 21 have been invited to become Master Dealers. SunPower awards the title of Master for outstanding customer service and providing first-class installations.

Our construction process begins with a pre-construction planning meeting led by our EPC project manager and involving your on-site project representative and any other subcontractors who will manage on-site work. This meeting educates everyone on the installation and the construction steps in the process. In our experience, this team is able to develop the best plan to efficiently receive and locate materials and work in the construction site with the lowest impact to your business operations. It also establishes the personal connections to quickly solve problems and make optimal decision during the construction process.

For all of our work, we provide a 5 year workmanship warranty and act as your one-stop contact for the equipment warranties for your installed system. Our construction phase completes with documentation and training on the operation of the system, the maintenance schedule, and contact information for issue resolution. We also offer monitoring services that can identify system performance issues and keep your system running at optimal productive capacity.

Our project manager can acquire all the equipment and materials to implement the design and would work with you to fully manage the logistics of delivering and storing them onsite to minimize any disruption to your normal business operations.

Another important aspect of procurement is our proven ability to manage all the required permits for construction as well as all the required paperwork and interactions with the local utility for grid-connection authorization and PTO (permission to operate). We can also manage the application forms and processes for any incentive programs and credits the system is eligible for. Simply put – our system design includes everything needed to build your system, meet all requirements AND take advantage of all the incentives and credits you are due.

Our engineering begins with the first conversation to understand your electricity requirements, history and project goals. We survey the site and evaluate the total solar power potential and work with you to review the options for all potential solar installations – including the roofs of existing buildings as well as the possible options for Solar Systems over parking areas and unshaded land that might be used for ground-mount systems.

The cost, financing, payback period, and system lifetime ROI are reviewed for each option and the quality equipment included in our designs is always selected meet your budget and optimize the return on your financial investment.

Our engineering plans are fully certified by our engineering partner company – ARC DESIGN – to meet all structural and electrical requirements and qualify fully for current federal and state incentive programs.
