Ardagh Group and partner KDC Solar have completed a 5.5MW net-metered PV project that is set to provide power to the Bridgeton, NJ glass manufacturing facility.
KDC Solar both built and will now operate the PV installation. Ardagh Group stands as a supplier of sustainable packaging goods and looks to minimise its negative environmental impact whilst remaining economically sustainable and socially responsible.
Bertrand Paulet, president and CEO, Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, said: “As a leading US manufacturer of infinitely recyclable glass bottles and jars, Ardagh Group is committed to be the leader in sustainability in the North American glass packaging market. As part of this drive for sustainability, we are continuously looking for new opportunities to increase our use of green energy.”
“We are pleased to have partnered with KDC Solar on this new state-of-the-art solar plant in Bridgeton, New Jersey, which will supply renewable energy for our glass manufacturing facility and thereby contribute to a further reduction in our carbon footprint,” Paulet remarked.
KDC Solar president and CEO Alan Epstein added: “It has been our privilege to work with Ardagh Group on this project in Bridgeton, New Jersey. We look forward to partnering on additional opportunities to supply clean solar energy to other Ardagh Group facilities throughout the United States.”
