Solar Energy System at NJ Headquarters
BRECOflex CO., L.L.C. Installs Solar Energy System at NJ Headquarters
BRECOflex CO., L.L.C., the world leader in the polyurethane timing belt industry has made a major commitment to conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprint. They have recently completed a massive solar project by installing solar panels on the roof of their NJ headquarters and manufacturing facility.
This solar initiative is expected to reduce emissions by more than 7,700 tons of CO2 over the guaranteed lifetime of the system and will offset electricity usage at the facility by 78%. To put that in comparable terms, it is the equivalent of over 25,000,000 vehicle gasoline miles or 1,004 trips around the globe, or the equivalent of planting 132 acres of trees. In the first month of usage alone, the solar panels generated more than 60000kWh of energy.
In addition to cost savings in the long run, solar panels have a positive environmental impact. Solar energy does not produce air or water pollution and does not produce greenhouse gases. Furthermore, placing this solar field on a very large roof area helps to protect wildli...
In addition to cost savings in the long run, solar panels have a positive environmental impact. Solar energy does not produce air or water pollution and does not produce greenhouse gases. Furthermore, placing this solar field on a very large roof area helps to protect wildlife and habitat. “As a progressive company, we are interested in whatever we can do to reduce pollution and help the environment. Solar panels are a great way for us to do our part. Launching our solar system during a very sunny June has enabled us to be 100% self-sufficient to-date, and has even enabled us to give a sizable percentage back to the grid,” says Bernie Fuellemann, President of BRECOflex CO., L.L.C.
This is not the first time BRECOflex CO., L.L.C. has made environmentally conscious decisions. In 2013, the company introduced their BRECOgreen line of timing belts which are made of 37% renewable materials yet still maintain a comparable load capacity and service life as conventional belts. Customers who are seeking environmentally aware solutions can purchase BRECOgreen belts in any size and with any tension member material.
