Description: In the summer of 2023, MSS partnered with Blasius Countertops to implement a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic installation in Vassar, Michigan utilizing bi-facial solar panels and capturing additional production by installing white crushed quartz to vastly improve production. This project aimed to cut electric expenses, stimulate business growth, and advance sustainability goals. The interconnected solar array effectively reduced and offset fossil fuel consumption, while real-time performance metrics were tracked using a data logging system, revenue-grade meter, and a weather station to give ownership visibility in real time performance metrics of the system.
