adelanto1Innovation happens when two metal manufacturing companies team up!  When McElroy Metal wanted to add solar panels to its California manufacturing plant, they called on fellow METALCON exhibitor, S-5! to assist.  Although their California plant didn’t necessarily need a new roof, after seeing the success they had from installing solar panels to their facility in Peachtree City, GA, McElroy decided it was worth the investment.  After almost five years, the energy generated at the McElroy Peachtree City facility surpassed the plant’s energy consumption, saving the company thousands of dollars.  McElroy expects to offset their California plant’s electrical usage and show a return on investment in approximately three years.
