Stan's Harley-Davidson to get Arista solar system

Arista Power Inc. has received an order valued at $574,000 for a 166-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array from Stan’s Harley-Davidson Inc. dealership in Batavia, Genesee County.

Stan's Harley-Davidson is a second-generation retail and service dealership occupying a 28,000-square-foot facility on the north side of Batavia. The solar system will be comprised of more than 600 American-made solar panels mounted on the storefront’s roof, Arista Power officials said. It will be tied into the building's existing electrical service and interconnected to National Grid's transmission lines.

The solar photovoltaic array is projected to generate 100 percent of the dealership's current annual consumption of electricity and will provide a payback of just more than seven years after taking in account state and federal incentives. 

Arista Power expects to install the array in the fourth quarter.

"This order from Stan's Harley-Davidson demonstrates the value we can provide to commercial customers by tailoring our suite of renewal energy solutions to meet the specific needs of each customer based on their individual energy usage profiles," said Mark Matthews, Arista Power president, in a statement.
