Keystone Adjustable Cap Co. recently completed the installation of a 271 kW roof-mounted solar energy system at its facility in Pennsauken, N.J.
The disposable paper cups manufacturer is expecting the system to generate about 340,000 kWh of energy in its first year of operation, according to a May 24 news release. In addition to the energy savings associated with the project, the solar energy system will also allow Keystone to utilize the New Jersey SREC incentive program, which provides revenue for the first 15 years of the project's life.
The system was developed, designed and built by Dynamic Energy. The system is expected to generate energy to offset more than 240 tons of carbon dioxide.
"Keystone is saving money and helping the environment at the same time – everyone wins!" Keystone CEO Andrew Feinstein said in a statement.
