Spiral continues its push to be environmentally friendly, so let the sun shine!
Spiral Binding James Burn USA has invested in a solar powered renewable energy management solution. Our goal with this investment is to help lower building operating costs and reduce our carbon footprint. Solar electric power provides an abundant, natural and clean source of sustainable energy. It reduces our carbon footprint by limiting harmful emissions to the environment and will help to reduce our reliance on foreign energy sources.
This project is one of the largest roof mounted installations in Northern NJ with approximately 3,500 new solar panels. The new solar installation will produce approximately 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year. The new 825 – kW DC solar power system will offset a total of 15,375 tons of carbon dioxide over its lifetime. The environmental benefits of such a large installation is equivalent to those gained by planting more than 4 million trees and eliminating over 40 million automobile driving miles.
“The incorporation of a solar energy system at Spiral is a huge commitment to the environment and to our community,” says Robert Roth, President of Spiral Binding. “Being able to participate in environmental responsibility on such a large scale is just another way that the company can assure all of its customers and neighbors that Spiral Binding truly cares.”
