New Energy Equity installed this 711 kW solar array in Plymouth, Minnesota to offset the electricity load of Protolabs’ manufacturing facility. The panels will produce roughly 839,000 kWh per year, enough to power 71 average Minnesota homes.
Protolabsis the world’s leading source for digital manufacturing, producing custom components in as fast as 1 day. They’re committed to supporting a range of sustainability efforts across the company, including this solar array on their flagship manufacturing facility. “Over the years, sustainability has become more and more important to us” says Brad Pfeifer, Director of Facilities at Protolabs “so this was a natural next step for us to explore using renewable resources such as solar.”
The rooftop array will offset 20% of the facilities electrical usage and 1.3 million pounds of Carbon Dioxide each year. That is the same amount of CO2 sequestered by 775 acres of forest.
