5/4/2013 7:00 AM

NEW HOLLAND, Pa. — Sunstream Energy, Paradise Energy Solutions and New Holland Concrete, a division of Martin Limestone, will dedicate their 1.12 megawatt solar system on Friday, May 17, in New Holland.

This system produces enough energy to power about 200 homes and is being used to cover more than half of New Holland Concrete’s energy demands.

“As a business, this project allows us to lock in reasonable long-term electric rates using a clean, renewable power source without a significant upfront investment,” said Jeff Detwiler, chief executive officer of Martin Limestone, owner of New Holland Concrete. “The system also generates the highest amounts of power during our peak production times.”

Tours of the system will be given beginning at 10 a.m. followed by a dedication ceremony and complimentary lunch noon-1 p.m.

Following the ceremony, tours will continue through 7 p.m. New Holland Concrete is at 875 E. Earl Road, New Holland.

Admission is free of charge. RSVP is requested by May 13 and those who wish to attend can do so by contacting Paradise Energy Solutions at 717-407-5152 or lmanuel<\ //paradiseenergysolutions.eventbrite.com/.
