Sheet Metal Supply switches to full operation on solar power


Following the move into a new and energy efficient facility and investing in new equipment, Sheet Metal Supply (SMS) has recently flipped the switch to operating 100 percent on solar power.

Verde Solutions, a full-service energy company s, designed and installed a roof-mounted solar array for Sheet Metal Supply that has a power rating of 159.81 kW-DC. Throughout its 30-year lifespan, the system is estimated to produce 5,780,505 kWh, which is the equivalent to CO2 emissions from 459,865 gallons of gasoline consumed; greenhouse gases from 883 passenger vehicles driven for one year; or carbon sequestered from 68,113 tree seedings grown for 10 years.

“With our new facility and the recent purchase of new and more efficient equipment, the natural next step was to run our entire operation on solar power,” says Ben Kweton, president of Sheet Metal Supply. “The transition to lowering carbon emissions and minimizing our carbon footprint was a conscious decision dedicated to investing responsibly in our future as well as the future of our customers.”

Founded in 1991, Sheet Metal Supply Ltd. is a fabricator/supplier of custom-formed perimeter edge systems, wall facades, flat lock tiles, substructural components, ES-1 rated products, architectural zinc, glazed-in panels, standing seam and more.
