Stanley Black & Decker Unveils 4.3 MW Solar Project
Stanley Black & Decker announced the installation of a 4.3 MW solar farm in Hopkinsville, KY, which is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 5,500 metric tons and save on energy costs by $400,000 annually.
As the state’s largest privately funded on-site solar project that is completely sourced from renewable energy, the solar field will span across nearly 15 acres and generate sufficient energy to power Stanley Black & Decker's onsite production facility while also providing excess energy for the state. The company partnered with Castillo Engineering and RPG Energy Group on the project.
"As part of Stanley Black & Decker's global environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) initiatives, this project, which we are fittingly celebrating on Earth Day, represents an impactful milestone as the organization progresses toward its mission of carbon neutrality by 2030," declared Rob Kirts, Director of Global Energy and Utilities at Stanley Black & Decker, in a statement. "With the help of Castillo Engineering and RPG Energy, we are working to deliver on our sustainability goals and made our purpose – For Those Who Make The World – a reality."
Stanley Black & Decker's ESG strategy features a set of 2030 commitments aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that incorporate three pillars: people, product, and planet.
