On a sunny day at Atlantic Coated Papers in Whitby, Ontario, the sun’s rays are doing much more than shining in the sky. They’re also providing energy to our large solar panel array recently installed to the roof of our facility.
As of June 15th, we have switched on our 96-kWh roof mounted solar system. The 196-panel system on our roof is facing to the south and is expected to produce nearly 8% of ACP’s annual electricity needs.
In addition to the solar wall that was installed in 2019 https://www.atlanticcoatedpapers.com/atlantic-coated-papers-takes-part-in-going-greener-with-cme-smart-program/ this new solar system will help us meet our energy and carbon reduction initiatives for 2020.
