Kreamer Feed Rooftop and Ground Solar

Project Brief

Kreamer Feed Inc., located in Kreamer, PA, is a local, family-owned agricultural feed brand established in 1947 that offers organic, non-medicated, Non-GMO Project Verified products in bagged and bulk quantities. As a company that takes pride in offering a line of organic products, the idea of operating more sustainably with clean, reliable solar power was appealing. Kreamer Feed selected ESA to design and install a 526kW project to reduce the increasing electricity costs associated with running its on-site mill and warehousing operations.

The rooftop and ground solar arrays are expected to save an estimated $3.5 million on electricity costs over time. The 1,333 solar panels will meet 60% of the company’s annual electricity needs, allowing Kreamer to recoup its system costs in less than six years.

The project also allowed the company to take advantage of the Federal Investment Tax Credit, which allows eligible businesses to go solar and apply 26% of the cost of the system as a tax credit. The 26% commercial ITC will be available through 2022 and is scheduled to be reduced in 2020.
