Partner Profile
As the medical labware industry’s longtime recognized leader in Earth Friendly™ reusable and recyclable products, Labcon North America installed a 796 kW rooftop solar system in 2011 to reduce GHG emissions and support renewable energy development. Solar energy production exceeded expectations allowing for a projected ROI in just under 7 years. Current energy costs including finance payments and rebates are equal to pre-solar energy costs for a net zero cost increase for going green, but after the 7 year payoff Labcon will save almost $20k per year. Sales have increased in green energy conscious countries such as Germany and Japan due to their support for sustainable manufacturing. The positive customer response plus economic and environmental benefits led Labcon to add another 73 kW in late 2013. A total of 869 kW of rooftop solar produced 30% of Labcon’s 2014 energy needs and Labcon’s goal is to operate with 75% renewable energy by 2020, 50% produced onsite.
