LAMINATE INNOVATOR HAS SUNNY OUTLOOK ON ENERGY SAVINGS

Dec 4, 2014

As of October, surface innovator ATI Decorative Laminates is offsetting half of its power consumption with renewable energy. This comes as a result of a large-scale solar project recently completed at the 70,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in central North Carolina.

“It’s something we’ve been working toward for several years,” says ATI President Tara Burgio. “As an ISO 14001 certified company, the solar project reflects our commitment to continuous improvement in all areas of the manufacturing process.”

Since June of this year, more than 950 solar modules have been installed, covering 85 percent of the company’s roof. These modules will annually produce an estimated 356 megawatt hours of clean energy. With North Carolina’s rate of carbon emissions at more than 1,600 pounds per MWh, ATI’s investment will reduce greenhouse gases by more than 732,000 pounds per year.

“As a small, privately owned company, this project is a big step in the right direction for sustainability,” says Vice President of Operations Chris Moore. “It reflects a ‘culture of conservation’ within our organization and our community.”
