Going Solar in Southwick

Going Solar In Southwick

WCA Retail is known for our outstanding products and services.  We strive every day to exceed our customer’s expectations, while finding innovative solutions to solve all of our customer’s needs.

WCA Retail and the entire WCA family are very excited to announce a recent change to our headquarters at One Whalley Way in Southwick.  Being a global leader in IT solutions, WCA founder and President John Whalley has always prided himself on being an innovator in the industry.  So it stands to reason that he would also lead the way in investing in more sustainable energy solutions for our company.

With that, WCA recently installed an array of solar panels on the rooftop of our main office.  The solar array consists of 930 LG solar panels and incorporates 31Hi-Q DC-AC converters and has a maximum output of 248kW.  The project, which was installed by Solect Energy from Hopkinton, MA, began in June of 2018 and was completed and operational on Tuesday, October 2nd.

Every day, the solar panels will start ramping up around 8:00 am and by noon, provided the sun cooperates, our building will run entirely on solar energy!  On an annual basis, it should generate approximately 60% of our electricity needs.   In addition to being a renewable energy source, having solar energy will reduce our electricity bills, lower our maintenance costs and of course, keep us in the forefront of technology development and modernization.

A special thank you goes to Patti Martin, WCA Retail’s Accounting Manager, for overseeing this important project.
