Earlier this morning, I described a chemistry innovation that improves the efficiency of solar cells – yet another example of how chemistry is fueling our nation’s energy future.
Today, taking a giant leap forward in the solar arena, Croda, Inc., the global specialty chemicals manufacturer, dedicated a massive, 305 kilowatt solar energy system at its Edison, New Jersey facility. Over half of the facility’s power needs will soon be met by the sun.
According to calculations, this photovoltaic feat, made possible by Mercury Solar Systems and EnterSolar, will have an environmental impact equivalent to:
Highlighting the importance of innovation early in the supply chain – where the chemistry industry lives and thrives – Croda president Kevin Gallagher added:
