Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders salutes Procter & Gamble for using solar energy at a paper products plant in California.

P&G turns to the sun for energy needed for California paper products plant.

Procter & Gamble and solar energy company Sun Edison have teamed up to install a 1.1 megawatt photovoltaic solar system at P&G’s paper products manufacturing plant located in Oxnard, Calif.,.   The solar powered generating system is expected to produce more than 34 million kilowatt hours during its first 20 years of operation. 

 The solar powered electric generating system will produce more than 1.9 million kilowatts of clean energy during its first year of operation.  Sun Edison paid for the entire installation of the system.  In turn, the alternative energy will be purchased by P&G under a long-term utility contract. 

A win-win situation powered by Cincinnati’s own P&G.  Good for them and good for the environment.
