The decision to be green should not be taken lightly so when Sandusky Lee revamped their Littlestown Pennsylvania facility it was decided to take a keen look towards the future. It became quite clear in order to not only sustain the company but also the environment at large the facility had to try and offset its carbon footprint and not be entirely reliant on the electrical grid. This decision has solidified Sandusky Lees dedication to be an industry leader and will prove to future generations what a company can environmentally achieve. HOW DOES IT WORK The 2700 solar panels Photovoltaic Panels create electrical current when exposed to sunlight generating 518000 kWhyr or the equivalent of 86 homes. Over time the rows of panels collectively achieve desired voltage and create as much power in a year as the facility uses. The generated electricity can then be used to power the facility or be sold back to the grid for general consumption. Internet PMRS Opening the door to a greener future... Chart House Energy and GeoSolar Energy Farm Inc. designed procured installed and commissioned this 400kW system the wattage equivalency of powering 8000 50-watt lightbulbs for one hour. 8K 100 of the solar system was built with U.S.A. owned and manufactured components creating American jobs. It makes use of under-utilized space with no continuous draw from MetEd. Additionally any power that is not used can be sold back to the grid for public consumption. These panels function well in less than ideal solar conditions providing power production in a wide variety of conditions including cloudy and rainy days and even moonlight. The power generated offsets 92 of the power used in the factory. 92 Assuming the average household uses 6000 kWhyr or the equivalent of 86 households of power the carbon offset will be 12682 Tons of CO2 over the next 40 years. 86
