Plastics factory goes solar powered



 

Husqvarna Group is building its first solar power generating facility at its current injection molding site in Nashville, USA. The new facility is expected to reduce the CO2  footprint by approximately 1000 t in the first year of operation and approximately 25 000 t over the expected 25 year life of the facility. The new solar power generation plant has capacity of 1,3 MW which will allow the company to increase its share of electricity from renewable sources of energy, and thereby reduce greenhouse gases and other emissions that incur from electricity generated by coal. Construction will begin in the third quarter of 2017, and is projected to be operational by the end of the year. The solar generating system is scalable and has the potential to be expanded in the future.
