Solar & Storage Power Plant
Using solar energy and Tesla Powerpack to help hire & retain top talent, reduce energy costs, and stay ahead of competitors
The power plant is part of the company’s competitive strategy to:
Attract employees and vendors with a commitment to clean energy innovation
Reduce overall electricity costs with peak demand shaving
Combining technology, data, design, & machine learning to create an intelligent, future-facing energy system
I would consider solar a strategic investment for our future. We’re in it for the long haul. We’re in it for our customers, we’re in it for our employees, we’re in it for our community of Fairfield.”
