Gold Crust Baking is committed to consistently delivering high quality breads with a sustainable and environmentally friendly business model. Its new 92,000-sq-ft production plant uses natural gas ovens, LED lighting and now generates 533,000 kWh of power from its new solar system.
Summary: In its contract with Gold Crust Baking, AEDG/SolarSense had a requirement to supply a minimum amount of electricity to the building. It wouldn’t have been able to meet that minimum requirement by using the typical approach to designing commercial rooftop solar, which is to prioritize power density (kW) over power generation (kWh). Instead the developer chose to use SolarDock to achieve a high tilt angle that would help the modules produce more energy, and Motech panels for the high quality and reliability over the lifetime of the panel.
