Orbit's partnership with Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky Renewable Energy program provides a significant step forward in its commitment to environmental stewardship.
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Actions speak louder than words. Orbit Irrigation, a leader in innovative watering solutions, proudly declares its commitment to a greener future with a complete transition to 100% renewable electricity sources. Through a partnership with Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky Renewable Energy program, Orbit Irrigation is taking a significant step in its commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.
The Blue Sky Renewable Energy program allows for the purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs) to match or exceed an entity's electricity usage. The program supports wind, solar, geothermal and biogas generation in the region, manages educational programs on renewable energy and helps businesses reduce their carbon footprints to achieve their sustainability goals.
"Given our unique position as a leader in watering solutions, we have always felt the responsibility to be good stewards of the environment by conserving Earth's precious resources," said Stuart Eyring, CEO at Orbit Irrigation. "In the fall of 2022, our sustainability teams embarked on a mission to strengthen our commitment to a sustainable tomorrow. Today, we are excited to share that all our operations are powered by 100% renewable electricity. Orbit's leadership stands united in advocating for a greener future, and this milestone is an expression of our pledge to reshape the landscape of watering solutions in a sustainable manner."
Orbit Irrigation's initiative with renewable energy is in harmony with its parent company, Gardena, a division of the Husqvarna Group. Gardena has long demonstrated leadership with sustainability initiatives. Together, they are forging a transformative path to revolutionize the way the world approaches water consumption, all while leaving a gentler footprint on the planet.
