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 result in a $20k per year savings for going green, however, Labcon will save at least an additional $100k per year after the final solar lease payments are made. Sales have increased regions such as Germany, Japan and the US coasts due to their support for sustainable manufacturing and green energy. 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. This is especially remarkable considering Labcon’s manufacturing is an energy intensive process that runs 24/7 year round.
