Kaeser Compressors and its German parent Kaeser Kompressoren are marking a full year of operations using only green energy.
According to a Kaeser press release, all Kaeser compressors in the U.S. and Germany were manufactured with 100% renewable energy.
Kaeser said the milestone was achieved with three key programs. First, over a year ago Kaeser Kompressoren installed a photovoltaic system that generates approximately 650 MWh for its main manufacturing plant in Coburg, Germany. Second, Kaeser purchases renewable energy credits for its remaining manufacturing facilities. And third, Kaeser Compressors in the U.S., is part of Dominion Energy’s Green Power Program and pays a premium per kWh for its headquarters in Fredericksburg, Virginia, to match energy consumption with renewable resources.
For its more than 20 branch locations across the country as well as its teleworkers, the company purchases renewable energy certificates from Dominion Energy, exceeding the amount of power consumed. Energy for the certificates is purchased from a broad range of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, hydropower, wave/tidal power, and landfill gas recovery.
According to the press release, these initiatives align with Kaeser’s ongoing commitment to reducing, and where possible, eliminating impact on our shared environment.
