Siemon’s 216,000 kWh Solar System Reduces CO2 Emissions by 186 Tons

siemon solarThe installation of a solar system at Siemon results in about 216,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a year, helping the firm reduce its carbon footprint by about 373,000 pounds of CO2, or about 186 tons.

The 15,600 square-foot solar system equals the annual output of about 22 homes, according to a press release. It generates about 217 kilowatts.

Siemon, a manufacturer of IT network cabling and infrastructure, installed the solar system at its Watertown, Conn., headquarters.
