Miyoshi America, a leading manufacturer for the global cosmetics industry is building a ground-mounted solar system at its manufacturing facility and US headquarters in Dayville, Conn., with Dynamic Energy. The 842 kilowatt system is projected to meet 38% of the facility’s annual energy needs. By partnering with Dynamic Energy, a full-service solar energy solutions provider, Miyoshi America was able to collaborate throughout the design process to customize specific site needs, while maximizing their operational goals.
“The Miyoshi Kasei Group’s goal is to provide products and services that offer peace of mind and safety to consumers and that are friendly to both society and the environment. We are committed to implementing initiatives that will protect the environment in harmony with local communities” said Tim Takagi, President of Miyoshi America.
When completed, the ground mounted solar array will generate over 1.13 megawatt hours of energy in its first year, enough to offset approximately 798 metric tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to the amount of carbon sequestered by 1,042 acres of U.S. forest each year.
“Dynamic Energy is honored to announce this partnership with Miyoshi America, and commends their entire leadership team for the collaboration, vision, and dedication with which they have approached this project. Their solar investment provides a positive example for Connecticut manufacturers who want to benefit the environment while improving the bottom line,” said Tim Carr, Vice President of Business Development at Dynamic Energy.
