Network Cabling Manufacturer Siemon Announces its 2009 Solar Power Generation Figures
Company's renewable solar power system generated over 216,000 kWh of clean energy in its first year of operation.
Watertown, CT — Siemon, a Connecticut, USA-based manufacturer of IT network cabling and infrastructure systems is proud to announce that its recently installed solar power system generated over 216,000 kWh of clean energy in 2009. Deployed as part of the company's ongoing environmental stewardship initiative, the 15,600 square-foot solar power system at Siemon's Corporate Headquarters and North American Manufacturing Campus has reduced the operation's dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
By shifting a portion of power usage to a non-polluting, renewable source, Siemon realized a number of environmental benefits. Carbon Dioxide emissions were reduced by over 373,000 lbs by this solar power system alone. According to EPA estimates, this CO2 reduction is equivalent to yearly output of 22 homes or 19,031 gallons of gasoline. Real-time power generation figures from Siemon's solar array and environmental benefit equivalencies can be viewed online at: http://www.siemon.com/us/company/environment/solar.asp
This clean solar power system joins a list of other sustainability efforts at Siemon, including an innovative waste management program that recently helped the company achieve Zero-Landfill status. Siemon recycles or repurposes over 900 tons of waste instead of sending it to landfills, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions by over 2,675 tons by EPA estimates.
