Bill Opalka of EnergyBiz reports: A COLD SNAP IN FEBRUARY last year in Texas saw more than 1,000 megawatts of resources respond within minutes when a blackout appeared imminent. In July in New York, the system operator called on 2,000 megawatts of demand response resources to curtail load during an oppressive heat wave. In this model – perhaps it can be called Demand Response 2.0 – a large commercial or industrial user would tap into its own on-site generation instead of curtailing use and disrupting operations. Call it a peaker at the plant, if you will. Tangent Energy Solutions, which […]
Mike Zebe of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports: “Brad Swalwell has been hired as director of market development for Tangent Energy Solutions, a Kennett Square firm that is developing sustainable-energy strategies.

Christopher Wink of Technically Philly reports: “Tangent Energy Solutions, the Kennett Square-based solar technology provider, launched last week solar energy generation installations at three Colonial School District schools in suburban Montgomery County. The three schools are the sites for two separate solar energy projects; one at the Plymouth Whitemarsh High School/Elementary School Campus, and a second at the Colonial Middle School. Combined, the projects will provide CSD with more than 825,000 kWh per year of clean electricity, which annually saves more than 1.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. CSD is projected to save more than $1.5 […]
Solar Energy Directory reports: “Tangent Energy Solutions today announced the completion of a 240 kilowatt (kW) rooftop solar array at Yuasa Battery, Inc.s manufacturing facility in Laureldale, PA. The system generates 299,438 kilowatt hours (kWh) of power, and over the 20 year term of the agreement Tangent estimates it will save Yuasa more than $300k in energy costs. Environmentally, the system eliminates 455,209 lbs of CO2 emissions — about the same as removing 40 cars per year from the roads. Tangent saves commercial and industrial companies 20% on energy costs, by combining technology and clean on-site generation assets to balance […]
Writes Matthew Freeman in The Kennett Paper on October 6, 2011: From now on you may see East Marlborough Township officials smiling on bright, sunny days—partly because the weather is nice, and partly because they know that renewable energy is flowing into the township building. Before their monthly meeting Monday night, the township supervisors officially unveiled a new solar-panel array mounted above the township building parking lot. The array was built by Tangent Energy Solutions, which is located in the township, and the power it generates will be sold to the township for 25 years at a locked-in, discounted rate. […]
Reports Jaccii Farris of WFMZ-TV: Green technology is giving a local school a boost to its bottom line. Career Institute of Technology said the solar panel project will also teach students the tools of the trade. “Today, we have a beautiful day to start to grow electricity,” said Joe Stemrich, CIT instructor. At the school in Easton, that electricity is growing in a field of solar panels and soon, on the rooftop of the school. “We are going to be able to generate electricity and buy it at a fixed rate for 20 years,” said Ron Roth, CIT director. CIT […]
Tom Coombe of the Easton Patch reports: “The Career Institute of Technology is going solar. The Forks Township technical school unveiled a set of solar panels Tuesday that educators say will save money and energy, and provide students with skills to someday become “green collar” workers. Dave Turner, the COO for Tangent Energy — which installed the panels — said the set-up will also help educate CIT students on how to install solar systems. And as the green jobs field expands, its workers will need to know skills like carpentry and drafting, skills the CIT is already teaching.” Read the […]
Amanda Card of The Chestnut Hill Local reports: “With an extensive recycling program, a solar commitment by the townships school district and a green-minded Parks and Recreation Department, Whitemarsh is ahead of the curve on moving towards a greener environment — addressing at-home needs as much as township programs. Last year, Colonial School District entered into a new division of eco-friendly education. This past April, board members unanimously approved the addition of solar panels to schools in the Colonial District. Times Herald reporter Jenny DeHuff reported that Colonial contracted with Tangent Energy Solutions, of Kennett Square, under the supervision of […]
Tangent COO Dave Turner and Nora Mead Brownell, former Pennsylvania PUC/Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Commissioner, spoke to Colonial School District’s Girls in Technology students to inspire careers in science and energy.
Tangent COO Dave Turner and Nora Mead Brownell, former Pennsylvania PUC/Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Commissioner, spoke to Colonial School District’s Girls in Technology students to inspire careers in science and energy. The educational partnership between Tangent and CSD was sparked by Tangent’s long-term energy solution for the school district, which includes on-site solar projects and will save the district nearly $1.5 million over a 20 year period. The Times Herald reports: About 20 females, ages 9 to 12, watched and listened intently as Tangent COO Dave Turner toured a giant solar panel brought into a classroom to demonstrate its size, durability and overall […]
