Ingevity hosts solar panel system at Waynesboro, Georgia, facility

By The Associated Press

WAYNESBORO, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 10, 2019--

Ingevity Corporation (NYSE: NGVT) is hosting a photovoltaic solar panel system on approximately five acres of its land adjacent to the company’s “honeycomb” scrubber manufacturing plant in Waynesboro, Georgia. The company is participating in Georgia Power’s Commercial & Industrial Renewable Energy Development Initiative (C&I REDI), joining other Georgia Power customers in contributing more than 177 megawatts of renewable energy resources.

“As we continue to apply the tenets of sustainability to our business strategy, we remain committed to working with our energy suppliers and other partners to find ways to generate savings through the use of renewable energy,” said Michael Wilson, Ingevity’s president and CEO.

The solar array was installed earlier this year by Radiance Development RCS II, LLC, Atlanta, Georgia. The new system consists of approximately 3,000 solar modules, and will produce approximately 1.9 million kilowatt hours of energy in its first year of operation, offsetting the equivalent of approximately 3 million pounds of carbon dioxide on an annual basis. Radiance will continue to operate the system.

This is Ingevity’s second solar system installed at a manufacturing facility; the first was constructed at the company’s North Charleston, South Carolina, plant in early 2018.
