Ingersoll Rand premieres solar at N.J. plant
Ingersoll Rand new solar array is now online at its 430,000 square-foot manufacturing plant in Trenton, N.J. The 1,990 kW GE Solar PV power system will provide 49M kWh of power and is expected to reduce nearly 35,600 metric tons of GHG emissions over the 20-year lifespan of the system. The Trenton plant produces Trane® and American Standard® brand heating and air conditioning systems for homes and residential buildings.
In a report by ACHR News, Jason Bingham, president of the Residential HVAC and Supply business of Ingersoll Rand, said, "Our investment in renewable energy is the next step in our journey, and the photovoltaic array at this plant an illustration of how innovation increases sustainability and resiliency of our operations." He added, "Over the past several years, many members of the Ingersoll Rand team have worked hard to increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at our facilities around the world, bringing benefits to customers, employees, and the environment."
"Availability and accessibility of renewable energy options continue to increase, making it attractive to industrial companies like Ingersoll Rand and to our customers," said Keith Sultana, senior vice president of Global Operations and Integrated Supply Chain for Ingersoll Rand.
Ingersoll Rand announced in April 2018 that it reached its target of 35% reduction of its GHG two years ahead of its projected deadline of 2020. The company also announced new investments in RE technologies to deepen its Climate Commitment and reduce its impact on the environment.
