Yuasa Battery, Inc. added a 240-kilowatt rooftop solar array to its manufacturing facility in Laureldale, Pa., the company announced Tuesday.
The installation generates 299,438 kilowatt hours of power and is expected to save Yuasa more than $300,000 in energy costs over the 20-year term agreement. The system also eliminates 455,209 pounds of CO2 emissions, which is about the same as removing 40 cars per year from the roads.
“GS Yuasa Corporation and its affiliates are committed to managing the environmental impact of products throughout their lifecycle on a global basis,” the company said in a press release. “This solar installation is another example of Yuasa Battery, Inc.’s commitment to environmental responsibility that will reduce the carbon footprint of the energy used in producing its powersports batteries.”
