NEW BEDFORD – Solar manufacturer SunPower has named Beaumont Solar Co. the New England 2013 Dealer of the Year, an award presented to regional dealers of SunPower products that demonstrate exceptional customer service, knowledge and leadership in their region of the United States.
“As a SunPower commercial dealer, Beaumont Solar has demonstrated a level of quality and commitment to excellence exceeding our expectations, and we look forward to their continued success in 2014,” said Howard Wenger, SunPower regions president.
Among Beaumont Solar's recent projects utilizing SunPower products are Millwork One, a 500-kilowatt roof system recently completed in Rhode Island, which utilizes 1,526 SunPower 327-watt panels, as well as a 390-kilowatt roof system at Shea Concrete Products in Amesbury, Mass., with 1,184 SunPower solar panels.
“We use SunPower solar panels for a large number of our jobs, as they achieve a higher density and harvest more power per kilowatt than other panels within the same footprint,” said Phil Cavallo, president and CEO of New Bedford-based Beaumont Solar. “This means we can use fewer solar panels to produce more energy, making it a win-win for the customer. This is especially important in the carport market, which enables a higher value proposition than deploying conventional panels.”
SunPower manufactures solar panels in the United States, Malaysia and the Philippines, and the company’s dealer network includes more than 2,000 dealers worldwide, with approximately 400 located in the U.S.
Beaumont has several large scale municipal projects underway in 2014, including a 6-megawatt ground array, and a 2-megawatt landfill superfund site, as well as a commercial rooftop and carport system in Bourne, Mass.
Beaumont Solar Co. focuses on rooftop, carport, ground array and landfill solar projects to provide predictable, sustainable, low-cost energy to businesses, schools, universities and governmental projects.
