[tab title=”Overview”]
To reduce reliance on the electrical grid, Timex Group had 800 pole-mounted solar panels installed on the lawn adjacent to the entrance of their headquarters in Middlebury, CT. The installation, completed in 2009, is one of the largest ground-mounted solar panel arrays in the entire northeastern United States. This clean energy project was made possible by a grant from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund.
