Alteris Renewables Helps Put Deutsche Bank Championship on the Green
Monday, Sep 07, 2020

Alteris Renewables, Inc., the leading installer of solar and wind energy systems in the Northeast, today announced that a solar power system using Evergreen Solar panels has been installed on the grounds of the TPC Boston in Norton for the 2009 Deutsche Bank Championship, a PGA TOUR Playoff event.

The goal of incorporating solar energy into the Deutsche Bank Championship is to highlight the importance of solar energy and its potential to help meet the nation’s energy needs while addressing concerns about the environment and global warming. The solar installation is part of the Deutsche Bank Championship’s overall greening initiative through which, for the second consecutive year, the tournament is the only carbon‚Äźneutral event on the PGA TOUR.

“Alteris Renewables is proud to play a part in helping to reduce the environmental impact of the PGA TOUR,” said Ron French, president of the Solar Business for Alteris Renewables.

“We commend Deutsche Bank for its leadership and commitment to the environment.

Through this leadership, it is showing that individuals and organizations can make a difference in the effort to reduce climate change.”

The solar system, which is housed between the ninth green and 10th tee box on the TPC Boston course, demonstrates to the public a typical photovoltaic (PV, solar electric) system that produces enough energy to power the average American home. The energy produced by the installation will be put back into the local power grid to help offset some of the power used throughout the Championship.

“We take great pride in being the first and only carbon‚Äźneutral event on the PGA TOUR,” said Eric Baldwin, Deutsche Bank Championship Director. “We’re excited to partner with Evergreen Solar and Alteris Renewables in order to not only offset our power consumption throughout Championship Week but also demonstrate the benefits of solar power.”

Alteris Renewables donated the design and installation materials and services. All of the panels for the installation were donated by Evergreen Solar. Evergreen uses proprietary technology that requires significantly less silicon resulting in the smallest carbon footprint of any silicon based solar panel.
