Green Lantern Solar, has completed a solar array for Chroma Technology, a Vermont-based certified B Corp and market leader in the precision optics industry. The 500-kW ground-mount array will produce enough energy to offset a third of Chroma’s annual energy expenses.
“This array will reduce Chroma’s operating expenses and have a real impact on its sustainability goals,” said Weston Martin, Director of Sustainable Partnerships, Green Lantern Solar. “We’re gratified to work with companies like Chroma who are taking real steps to demonstrate how costs savings and a clean energy future can be achieved.”
The virtual net-metered solar project was developed, constructed and is owned and operated by Green Lantern Solar and is the company’s most recently completed in its home state of Vermont. The energy produced by the 1,870 solar module array is approximately 958,200-kWh annually, offsetting the CO2 emissions from 82,602,601 smartphones charged and 123 homes’ electricity use for one year.
“As a Certified Employee-Owned B Corporation Chroma is committed to sustainable and socially responsible business practices,” said Newell Lessell, CEO, Chroma. “This new solar array will enable us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint even as our business continues to grow.”
