"Glopak Corporation Goes Green with Solar Energy"
Glopak Corporation and Energy Conservation Technologies Partners (ECTP at http://www.ectechnologiesllc.com) announce the installation of a 1.2 MW Solar Energy System at Glopak's Headquarters in South Plainfield New Jersey. ECTP, as the solar developer, has selected The Solar Center as the installer. This environmentally-based initiative consists of 1,889 solar panels installed on the roof and 2,396 solar panels installed on the ground at the South Plainfield facility. The completed system will produce approximately 1.3 megawatt hours of energy, which will provide approximately 50% of the electrical needs of the facility. The new solar panel system is also expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 1,800,000 pounds per year which is equivalent to planting 4,500 trees every year the system is in service.
“This solar system installation allows us to build a sustainable practice into our business while still providing quality service and comfort to our employees and customers,” stated Harold Martin CEO and owner of Glopak Corporation. “Our commitment to contribute to a more sustainable world is resolute. However, the ongoing implementation challenge is very real and highly demanding - our success or failure lies in the hands of the men and women operating at the project level. We feel that we have made a great decision to place our project in the hands of highly qualified professionals at Energy Conservation Technologies Partners whose creative ideas and solutions stood out from the competition.”
Currently, the project is in the construction phase which consists of building the roof & land based system for connecting to the grid. "We are thrilled to have been selected to manage and develop the project that is sure to set the standard for sustainability for Glopak Corporation," said Darnell Burt, Chief Executive Officer at Energy Conservation Technologies Partners. "This is one of the biggest green initiatives in Middlesex County and we are proud that Energy Conservation Technologies Partners was selected by Glopak Corporation, a global leader of plastic material manufacturing," expressed Darnell Burt. The Glopak Corporation headquarters is located at 132 Case Street, South Plainfield, NJ 07080.
