US Extruders' Operations Running on 100% Solar Power
As part of US Extruders’ continued efforts towards sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment, we have installed roof mounted solar panels. The solar panels provide clean energy and power 100% of our operations while reducing the building’s carbon emissions by 2,354 tons over the 20-year term.
“We are committed to keeping American manufacturing as part of the global environmental solution. As we harness the tremendous potential of solar energy, we control our future costs while maintaining manufacturing integrity. The solar installation becomes cost positive within three years and is a savings we can pass along to our customers,” said Dan Schilke, Operations.
US Extruders has also implemented a major conversion to LED lighting, recycling program, and are working towards a high efficiency heating system and future waste-reduction procedures
