Croda installs solar panels in NJ

I like this photo of Croda Inc.’s new 305 kilowatt solar panel system installed at its Edison, New Jersey, US facility.  The system is anticipated to provide more than 50% of the power required for the facility, which is equivalent to powering 42 average sized homes or saving over 27,500 gal/year of gasoline, according to the company.

Croda said this is the first solar panel system installed at any of Croda’s facilities worldwide.

“Croda is committed to being a responsible and ethical organization, and we have a global goal of obtaining 25% of our energy from non-fossil sources by the end of 2015,” commented Kevin Gallagher, President of Croda Inc.

Mercury Solar Systems engineered, designed and installed the system and EnterSolar of Newark, NJ was the project developer.
