For over 40 years, South Atlantic Services, Inc. (SAS) has been a leader in the contract manufacturing of automotive fluids and agricultural products. In 2012, SAS partnered with URE to complete their first solar project which was a 500 kW rooftop installation. After the initial project, SAS decided to utilize unused roof and ground space and partnered with URE to complete two additional projects. The two projects consisted of 120 kW rooftop system as well as a 2.21 MW ground mount project.

The ground mount project encompasses approximately 12 acres of idle land and straddles a transmission and natural gas easement. There is a single interconnection point with the utility off taker, which required URE to acquire the necessary approvals to cross the easements. The 2.2 MW project utilized fixed tilt racking engineered to meet the requirements of the coastal wind zone.

The 120 kW rooftop project is mounted to the standing-seam metal roof using non-penetrating S-5 clamps. The system is flush mounted to the roof to minimizing wind loading in the high wind zone. The project is a net-metering configuration and delivers power to meet SAS' electrical needs first, and receiving a credit for any excess generation.
