Delaware’s Motech Americas LLC, a subsidiary of Motech Industries, Inc., announced that 1,430 of its U.S. manufactured 300-Watt pv solar panels, being installed at Landover, MD baking facility, are contributing to the annual elimination of 869,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions, 1,405 lbs. of nitrogen dioxide emissions and 3,200 lbs. of sulfur dioxide emissions while reducing electricity costs by some $250,000. The system, being used at ‘GoldCrust Baking,’ began construction in fourth quarter 2013 and will be fully operational in 2014. MOTECH Americas works to provide a global source of clean and renewable energy, and strives to create a sustainable environment for future generations.
“This is a valuable and responsible undertaking,” said Dave Holleran, Senior Manager of Module Sales for Motech Americas, “because of the significantly reduced environmental footprint that will result. Specifically, the project will have very tangible environmental benefits, including the equivalent of 909,407 car miles not driven and 10,126 trees grown for 10 years.
