In these times of rising energy costs and concern about the environment, Financial Resources Federal Credit Union is proud to announce the closing of a $2,600,000 loan to help finance a photovoltaic solar panel system on the roof of the Fram Trak  manufacturing plant in Middlesex, New Jersey.  “As a company that is committed to promoting green energy, we are honored to be part of this very important project,” explains Philippe Ferreira, AVP, Member Business Lending, Financial Resources Federal Credit Union.

The solar panels will cover a roof top area of approximately 1 1/2 acres, and produce more than 600 kilowatts of electrical power, which is equivalent to a year’s worth of power for 60 homes or more. This use of solar energy will offset almost 100% of Fram Trak’s current power usage, which impressively translates to a reduction of over 800 tons of carbon emissions per year.  “We are looking forward to being in the forefront of green technology implementation,” says Albert Santelli, Jr., CEO of Fram Trak Industries. 

Albert Santelli, Sr. of Santelli Family Limited Partnership is very excited about the energy saving prospects of using solar energy.  “If it weren’t for Financial Resources, we wouldn’t have been able to do it,” noted Santelli.  He clarified that the process of securing the loan was quick and painless by adding, “I’ve been dealing with banks for decades, and the people at Financial Resources were a joy, unlike your typical banker.”

The contractor for the project is KRN Solar, LLC., a company with extensive experience in creating renewable solar energy solutions for both residential and commercial customers.  They are particularly committed to helping companies achieve a greener future. This energy-saving project is the largest of its kind in Middlesex Borough.  Financial Resources Federal Credit Union hopes this will inspire other companies to explore the use of renewable energy sources.
