SHELTON, Conn.: Impact Plastics, a custom sheet extrusion company headquartered in Connecticut, recently completed the installation of a rooftop solar system. Dynamic Energy Solutions, LLC, a full-service solar energy solutions provider, designed and built the system.
“Dynamic Energy is thrilled to have partnered with Impact Plastics on their solar initiative,” said Timothy Carr, VP of Business Development. “This project demonstrates that solar represents not only a terrific business decision that eliminates a variable overhead cost and provides significant savings that go right to the bottom-line but is a decision that also creates a meaningful environmental impact. Impact Plastics is a home-grown, American manufacturer that will now make the sun an asset for years to come and we commend their innovative leadership on taking this exciting step.”
The new rooftop system is comprised of 1,172 individual solar panels, for a total system size of 375,040 watts of clean power. The system is estimated to generate 451,876 kWh of electricity for use at the facility in the first year alone. Impact Plastics participated in Connecticut’s Zero Emission Renewable Energy Credit (ZREC) solar incentive program and obtained a long-term award to produce solar-generated electricity at the site.
David Kingeter, President of Impact Plastics said, “Reducing our carbon footprint and dependence on fossil fuel continues to be our highest priority. Sustainable initiatives such as the integration of solar energy to support our Putnam facility further enhances our position that Impact Plastics Putnam is likely the most sustainable custom sheet facility in North America.”
In addition to the cost savings, the solar energy system also drastically reduces the carbon footprint. The energy produced by the solar system equates to offsetting 371 tons of carbon dioxide in the first year – an equivalent amount of CO2 emitted by 72 passenger cars driven for an entire year.
