Air Products to build 1.5 MW solar farm at its headquarters

The company said the solar farm will produce enough energy to serve the needs of nearly half of its administration buildings. It also said that it should reduce its dependence on purchased electricity, thereby lowering its carbon dioxide footprint by more than 1,000 tons per year.

Approximately USD$1 million will be invested into the project.

"We are excited to have this renewable energy opportunity right in our own backyard," said John McGlade, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Air Products. "Our employees are looking forward to putting our Sunsource Solutions for photovoltaics to work thereby reducing our carbon footprint and generating sustainable, clean energy to power a portion of our campus."
