Many expect to see names like Walmart and the US Airforce on the EPA’s Top 20 On-Site Generation List, but lesser known companies like Zotos, (a manufacturer of hair care products), are also earning recognition for their sustainable energy efforts.
According to the American Wind Energy Association, the Zotos Wind Project is considered to be one of the top on-site wind projects currently being undertaken by a manufacturing company in the US.
“It was a sizable investment to purchase the wind turbines, but it was a small price to pay when compared to the major benefits it creates for the community of Geneva, NY, and our environment,” says Anthony Perdigao, Zotos Chief Sustainability Officer.
With approximately 6.5 million kWh of electricity produced annually, the Zotos wind turbines will provide more than 50 percent of organization’s energy requirements and are expected to reduce overall CO2 emissions by 50 percent in 2011. Zotos’ energy goal is to utilize 100 percent renewable energy by 2012.
