WCA OEM and the entire WCA family are very excited to announce a recent change to our headquarters at One Whalley Way in Southwick, Mass.  As the founder of a company that has emerged as a global leader in IT solutions, John Whalley has always prided himself on being an innovator in the industry. It is a philosophy shared by WCA President Michael T. Sheil. Together, they have led the way in investing in more sustainable energy solutions for our company.  

In keeping with that objective, WCA recently installed an array of solar panels on the rooftop of our headquarters.  The solar array consists of 930 LG solar panels, incorporates 31Hi-Q DC-AC converters, and has a maximum output of 248kW.  The project, which was installed by Solect Energy from Hopkinton, Mass., began in June of 2018 and was completed and operational on Tues., Oct. 2 of the same year. 

 Every day, the solar panels become operational around 8 a.m. and by 12 noon, provided the sun cooperates, the building runs entirely on solar energy. The system is designed to generate approximately 60% of our electricity needs annually. In addition to being a renewable energy source, solar energy reduces WCA’s electricity bills, lowers maintenance costs, and keep us in the forefront of technology development and modernization.
