Belimo Americas Installs One of the Largest Solar Power Generating System in Connecticut
Belimo Americas President, James Furlong today announced the commissioning of an 877kW solar power generating system at Belimo Americas Headquarters. The installation is one of the largest solar power installations in Connecticut and will meet 25% of the building’s electricity demand. Investing in this solar power generating system underscores Belimo's commitment to technologies used to protect our environment. The project is another step in Belimo's mission to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions from commercial buildings worldwide.
Belimo directly contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by incorporating the UN Global Compact principles into strategies, policies, and procedures. Belimo not only upholds its primary responsibilities to people and the planet but also sets the stage for long-term success in the HVAC industry. To reduce CO2 emissions and increase renewable energy use, Belimo has installed the solar system to promote environmental protection and offset grid-supplied electricity. The system is comprised of 2192 high-output solar modules and is expected to produce approximately 1.1 megawatts annually, enough to power 100 homes.
