Nestle Purina PetCare, producer of pet food brands such as ALPO, Purina Cat Chow, Friskies and Purina Beneful, has completed a solar array at its Atlanta manufacturing plant.
The solar array, designed and installed by United Renewable Energy, comprises nearly 1,900 solar panels and will produce more than 585,000 kWh annually. The installation's output will be used to power equipment in various areas of the plant, including processing, packaging and a warehouse.
‘We at Nestle Purina are passionately committed to creating a better world for pets and their owners, today and in the future,’ says Mark Burns, vice president and director of manufacturing for Nestle Purina PetCare. ‘Employing renewable energy at our manufacturing facilities is just one aspect of our overall company plan to create shared value for society, which means going the extra mile to make a difference for generations to come.’
