In 2012, we installed a solar farm (panel array) on the roof of our Lawrence, Massachusetts facility and we are now utilizing 100% solar generated energy to power the manufacturing of Innerpeace Sheets and other textile products.
Over 50,000 square feet of solar panels provide us with enough electrical power to run our entire building. Currently, we are utilizing only 35% of the total amount of electrical energy capacity generated. Over 50% of the “excess” energy is fed directly back to the power grid; providing heat and light to dozens of neighboring homes and businesses.
Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available. Solar technologies can harness this energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial use.
