SCHOTT Solar PV Inc. and Kastle Solar & Wind recently completed a 120-kilowatt solar installation on the roof of the Dayton Daily News distribution center in Dayton, Ohio. It is the largest commercial solar installation in southwest Ohio and will meet approximately 60% of the building’s electricity needs.

The installation consists of 528 SCHOTT POLY® 225 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. Kastle Solar & Wind, part of Kastle Electric, installed the PV panels in five weeks and used local electricians.

“We commend the Dayton Daily News for their investment in clean renewable energy that will help diversify our electricity supply, reduce our dependence on coal-fired electricity, help to clean up our environment, and strengthen our local economy,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Dan Foley.

“SCHOTT Solar is committed to building a strong U.S. solar industry that creates American jobs from the manufacturing of the panels to their installation,” said Tom Hecht, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing for SCHOTT Solar PV Inc. “It’s our privilege to work with partners like Kastle, who match their history of excellence in the electrical world with the quality of SCHOTT solar panels to deliver cost-effective, reliable solutions for customers.”
