BP Solar Cuts Emissions, Lowers Energy Costs at U.S. Plant
BP Solar International, a leading manufacturer of solar panels, has cut its greenhouse gas emissions and electricity costs at a U.S. manufacturing plant by using energy saving technologies from Energy Automation Systems Inc. (EASI).
EASI’s energy-reducing equipment was installed in BP Solar International’s 100,000+ square-foot Frederick, Maryland facility in 2006 and 2007, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Jeffrey Brelsford, North American customer service manager of BP Solar International said the lower a facility’s electricity usage, the less greenhouse gases its can create. He said his facility’s energy bills fell eight percent based on a six-megawatt site after EASI technologies were installed.
BP also announced that BP Solar Deutschland GmbH and Meridian Neue Energien GmbH have signed a 5-megawatt contract for module supplies. The BP Solar modules will be used for five rooftop projects, which are already in the construction phase, reports Renewable Energy World. They will be operational in August 2009.
