Weldship Corporation has significantly reduced its carbon footprint as a result of the installation of its solar power system.
The Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based company has set-up 831 solar panels across its manufacturing facility, covering 15,000 square feet.
The excess power from the solar panels has been yielded and supplied back to the grid via Pennsylvania Power and Light.
The million-dollar project has greatly reduced the need for conventional electricity production, allowing Weldship – a manufacturer of tube trailers, tank trailers, ISO containers and ground storage – to avoid the emission of 1,077,326 lbs of CO2 over the course of two years.
