Suncast Expands Illinois Solar Facility
Suncast Corp. expands its solar system as part of the company's Brilliant by Design initiative. The company has already installed solar power at a third of its production sites.
By the end of 2022, all of Suncast's manufacturing facilities will be partially solar-powered, and the company's distribution centers in West Chicago – 1.5 million square feet – will be 100% solar-powered. This project will generate more than 14 million kW of clean energy.
"At Suncast we are always looking to the horizon to improve our processes, products and the environment to make a meaningful impact," said Jim Ahlborn, President and CEO of Suncast Corp. “As a company with 'sun' in its name, it is only fitting that we should use the power of the sun forever. Renewable energies are the key to our sustainability strategy and this solar milestone is the first of many. "
