Decom Solar donates components from decommissioned solar project to Haiti community

Decom Solar, a solar decommissioning services provider, completed decommissioning a 661.96-kW rooftop system for Seyon Management, a property management company. The solar installation, located atop a warehouse in Watertown, Massachusetts, needed to be removed to facilitate building renovations. The major construction phase took three weeks, and all significant equipment was repurposed through resale and donation.

“We are thrilled to work with clients who share our dedication to sustainability. Seyon Management recognized the importance of keeping functional solar equipment in operation,” said Jerry D’Arco, co-founder of Decom Solar.
Decom Solar partnered with the non-profit Let’s Share the Sun Foundation and donated a portion of the equipment, which will supply clean energy to the Santa Chiara Children’s Center in the Cite Soleil commune in Port au-Prince, Haiti.
Let’s Share the Sun is coordinating the delivery and installation of the equipment in Haiti, overcoming challenges posed by the unstable political climate.
“Our focus is on ensuring that these modules reach Haiti to provide clean energy to the neediest communities most affected by political unrest,” said Bill Jordan, co-founder of Let’s Share the Sun.
By keeping this equipment in operation, it is projected to offset enough energy to power 154 homes per year. To further its commitment to the environment, Decom Solar has partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. For this project, Decom Solar donated 1,976 trees to be planted on behalf of Seyon Management.
“Decom Solar proved to be the perfect partner for us. Their expertise in solar decommissioning was evident from our first meeting, and their clear communication and adaptability contributed to one of the smoothest construction projects I’ve ever been a part of,” said Joe DiRienzo, senior project Manager at Seyon Management.
