Chelten House Goes Big for Solar Power
Chelten House Products has completed an 877-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system on the roof of its state-of-the-art, 150,000-square-foot facility in Bridgeport, N.J.
“As a leader in the organic and all-natural food segments, environmental sustainability is a core principal for us,” says Steve Dabrow, Chelten House CEO. “We are proud that more than 50 percent of our processing facility’s annual electricity requirements will now be met with clean and renewable energy generated from our on-site solar system.”
More than 3,650 individual solar panels will produce 1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, which the company says is a reduction of more than 1.3 million pounds of carbon emissions annually. “Our new solar system will allow us to demonstrate our corporate commitment to sustainability while significantly reducing our ongoing energy costs and mitigating future electricity price volatility,” says Robert Paradise, Chelten House CFO.
