Paterson, NJ – November 6, 2019 – Accurate Box Company, a women-owned company and manufacturer of litho-laminated corrugated packaging, is pleased to announce the implementation of a new green energy project. Over the course of six months, solar panels were installed on the roof of Accurate’s 400,000 sq. ft. New Jersey facility.
The entire system is 1 Mega-Watt and is capable of supplying up to 20% of Accurate’s electrical needs throughout its facility. The installation was completed and switched on in mid-October, after the final connection steps were performed by PSE&G. When Accurate is closed, all of the electricity generated by the solar array can be sold back to PSE&G.
Jason Bruno, Accurate Box’s CFO, states, “The use of these solar panels by Accurate means that we are reducing our carbon footprint even further, and we will be saving over 10% per year in electrical costs.” Accurate Box continuously works to reduce its carbon footprint through its yearly sustainability goals. Accurate currently uses all LED lighting throughout its facility that is in accordance with NJ green energy standards, which is equivalent to the LEED Silver Certification.
“Accurate Box will continue to look for opportunities to expand its solar system further, as it becomes technologically feasible to do so” states Bruno. Accurate places great value on maintaining standards of responsibility and is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to give back to its environment.
