At ebm-papst, our philosophy is focused on constantly trying to improve the effect the company has on the environment, whether through the products manufactured here or by the actions of those that represent the company. A recent undertaking was the installation of solar panels on the Tech Center and Manufacturing Facility at 110 Hyde Road. The solar panels became operational on June 16, 2011. The power generated by the panels is enough to satisfy the needs for powering the Tech Center offices. At the peak output, the panels are capable of producing 50kw of electricity.
Some facts and figures:
238 solar panels
32 Mega-watt hours have been generated to date
Daily electricity production is more than enough to power the Tech Center offices
Environmental equivalent to planting 425 trees
