08/27/18 Solar Energy Use Cases for Industrial Plants

Article - August 27, 2018 By

Portable Solar Tower - 16' Mast - (2) 165W Panels, (2) 12V 250aH Batteries, Timer - NEMA 3R

Solar Energy Use Cases for Industrial Plants

Industrial manufacturing plants consume massive amounts of energy on a regular basis. The facilities use the power to run large machines, processors, lighting systems and more.

These days, several leading producers across various sectors, from Tesla’s EV production plant (Gigafactory 1) to Apple’s solar panel field, are leveraging sustainable energy to ease operational costs. Even large retails brands are getting in on the action, with Target, Walmart, Costco, Kohl’s and IKEA all using some form of solar energy to support operations.

To better understand how solar energy can benefit industrial producers, it is important to take a closer look at how solar equipment is being used by businesses in fast-moving sectors.

Case Study #1 (Verizon)

Telecommunications giant Verizon has installed numerous solar panel systems to boost usage of renewable energy. With investments reaching $140 million, the company has installed such equipment in over six facilities. For instance, the company utilizes roof-based solar panels at its data center in New Jersey, which also provides insulation for the building. To date, the business generates enough power for a residential community consisting of 8,500 homes.

Verizon’s goal with solar panel installations at its facilities is substantially reducing its carbon footprint by 2020. Verizon’s competitors, such as AT&T, are also looking into sustainable energy solutions and have been working with local energy companies to effectively meet their goals.

Case Study #2 (Volkswagen)

Volkswagen’s Chattanooga facility in Tennessee incorporates 33,600 solar panel arrays, which are spread out over 33 acres of land. Another 33 acres is used for manufacturing-related operations. The solar base provides roughly 13 percent of the power used by the building.

Interestingly, Volkswagen doesn’t own the solar equipment. A third-party business setup the solar park and is selling power to the automaker, under a 20-year contract. In addition to Volkswagen, Ford, GM and Toyota also use solar energy at their respective facilities.
