Post Time:Feb 08,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:307


Mage Powertec Plus modules of Mage Solar, part of the globally operating Mage Group, are part of a 122.4 kilowatt rooftop  photovoltaic (PV) installation in Manhattan, according to a February 7 company news release. The solar array is at the elevation of 737 feet, making the building one of the tallest in the world with a solar PV installation on its roof.


The installation on top of the 50-story commercial building in the heart of Manhattan was recently completed. With their 30-year 80 percent power output guarantee, Mage Powertec Plus modules are a visible, long-term commitment to corporate sustainability, and a financial investment and innovative business model. Since the modules exclusively feature positive tolerances (0 to +5 Watts) the system will produce with optimal efficiency for a maximum amount of time.


“Magr Solar is proud to be part of this enormously exciting project,” says Joe Thomas, president and CEO, in the release. “Whenever a company decides to add sustainability and innovative technology into their business plan, there are economic drivers behind it as well. With Mage Solar’s premium performance modules the owners are guaranteed maximum power efficiency and yield for the longest amount of time. But this innovative PV-installation also proves the great adaptability of solar PV systems, be it a homeowner’s roof in the countryside, utility-scale trackers, or almost 1,000 feet above the ground in the middle of one of the most exciting cities in the world, solar works everywhere in America.”
