Metro Label Company partnered has with Solar Provider Group to install a 350 kW solar project on their rooftops. The solar plant is fitted with Silfab solar panels, Advanced Energy inverters and KB Racking’s EkonoRack mounting system. The 350 kW system will generate over 645,900 kWh of clean electricity annually, reducing the emissions footprint of Ontario’s electricity system by approximately 75 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions – equivalent to powering an estimated 90 homes per year.
Apart from its environmental benefits, the project has generated a number of construction, engineering and project management jobs, boosting local economic growth. The solar project is the crowning jewel of Metro Label’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified facility, and one of many initiatives that Metro label is undertaking with respect to environmental responsibility.
