In the fall of 2017, Reliable Production Machine & Welding installed a 1.2 megawatt solar array. The electric power generated from the solar field produces 75% of Reliable’s needs. The solar system uses net-metering, which allows excess solar power generated during peak sun hours to go back on the grid for others to use. Reliable wanted to reduce their carbon footprint and use clean renewable energy to power the facility. Solar energy was a clear choice as the system will generate clean power for many years to come.
