Nourison Nearing Completion of Solar Project at NJ Headquarters
Rug producer and importer Nourison is installing a network of solar panels on the roof of its Saddle Brook, N.J., corporate offices and warehouse that will soon be capable of producing at least 770,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.
The company said the solar installation will reduce the company’s carbon footprint and further support its “green” initiative.
When completed in early December, the system will include 2,090 solar panels, the company said.
“As a responsible company, our conscience guides us to make every reasonable effort to protect our environment and our renewable energy efforts support those beliefs,” said Alex Peykar, principal of Nourison. “Our work takes us all over the world and we are proud to work with others on the global push for green energy solutions.”
In addition to state sponsored renewable incentives and federal tax credits, choosing solar power as sustainable energy will also help reduce Nourison’s operating costs, Peykar said.
The project’s development and installation will be provided by Solar Landscape, a New Jersey-based electrical contractor specializing in large commercial solar integration projects.
