SAYREVILLE, N.J. (April 27, 12:10 p.m. ET) — Sabert Corp., a food packaging thermoformer and injection molder, is soaking up the sun at its New Jersey headquarters.
Sabert recentely launched solar energy systems at its research and developmentcCenter and Northeast manufacturing facility, both in Sayreville.
The roof-mounted solar arrays can generate enough clean energy to offset the company's electricity costs – approximately 3 million killowatt-hours of clean energy in the first year, according to a news release.
According to the release, 3 million kwh is equivalent to more than 5 million pounds of CO2, or comparable to taking 494 vehicles off the road or conserving 5,857 barrels of oil.
The 3.176 MW New Jersey roof mount systems were installed by Vanguard Energy Partners, a solar construction firm, last fall.
This is Sabert's second solar installation. The company also has a solar system at its facility in Riverside, Calif.
