Zipper Manufacturer Adds Solar To Anaheim Facility


Solar panel maker Mitsubishi Electric US Inc., installation firm SunGreen Systems and zipper manufacturer YKK (U.S.A.) Inc. have announced the completion of a 521 kW solar PV system at YKK’s Anaheim, Calif., facility.

Teaming up with SunGreen Systems, YKK installed 1,968 of Mitsubishi’s Diamond Pro solar modules on the roof of its plant, and the installation will offset nearly 100% of the facility’s energy usage.

John Hoffman, managing partner of SunGreen Systems, says, “Given the current [investment tax credit] rebate and declining cost of solar, we are seeing more and more companies realize that solar is affordable and payback time is very attractive.”
