Siemon Extends Its "Green" Operations Initiative with Clean Solar Power
Siemon's Dynamic Manufacturing Building in Watertown, CT now relies on the sun for some of its power.
As part of Siemon's ongoing environmental stewardship initiative, the company has launched an aggressive solar energy program at its Watertown, CT Corporate Headquarters and North American Manufacturing Campus.
Construction involved a 217KW, 15,600 square-foot solar power system at Siemon's Dynamic Manufacturing Facility. This clean and renewable energy system reduces this power hungry operation's dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

Supported in part by a grant from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, Siemon's solar installation will provide a yearly greenhouse gas reduction of 159 metric tons - equivalent to the yearly output of 30 automobiles, or 18,000 gallons of gasoline. The energy generated would be sufficient to power up to 21 homes.
