Consistent with the IKEA commitment to sustainability, we recently installed two large solar PV arrays on the roof of our 1.8 million-square-foot distribution center in Perryville, MD — making the combined installation one of the largest rooftop solar arrays in the country.
Phase One consisted of approximately 18,000 panels producing 2.7 megawatts of power and Phase Two consisted of approximately 7,300 panels producing 2.2 megawatts of power. When Phase Two bids were received, it was clear Byers provided the most accurate and comprehensive proposal. With the confidence of IKEA and our solar integrator, Byers was selected as the sole contractor for both phases and was instrumental in keeping the project on track, on budget and completed with the highest degree of workmanship and professionalism from inception to completion. Many times during the project, Byers went above and beyond what was expected in order to keep the project moving in the proper direction.
In my 25 years of experience as a Facilities Manager, Byers Electric has made the short list of extremely capable, competent and trustworthy contractors.

Byers Electric is a proven asset to the success of a project. Coordination, manpower, attention to detail, involved management and “out of the box” solutions are needed in a competitive environment and Byers Electric meets all of these requirements. Support on unplanned repairs was also immediate and efficient.
Byers has strong field leadership, ensuring the asset is constructed with a quality that will endure through years of operation.

I can’t say enough about Byers Electric as they have been a critical asset to our plants operation for years. Their team is always very responsive to emergency calls and completes every project as quickly and efficiently as possible to meet our deadlines while maintaining minimum downtime. Their attention to detail is manifested in their installations and has proven to be some of the cleanest and most organized work I’ve seen.
As a testament to Byers level of support, our process system engineering firm even strongly recommended we use Byers for our next production line in Las Vegas, despite the cost of travel.
