Con Edison Solutions, a leading national energy services company and subsidiary of Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses, Inc., has designed and installed the solar system for Perry Ellis International. The site is expected to generate approximately 1.15 Gwh of energy annually, offsetting a significant portion of the distribution centre's energy needs with clean, renewable solar power.
"As a global fashion company with offices and production facilities around the world, we are placing an ever-growing focus on sustainable facets of our operation. While the industry as a whole has made some great strides, it is important to keep the momentum going to bring about positive change. This is our first major solar power installation and serves as a launch pad for additional initiatives in renewable energy and company-wide corporate social responsibility programmes. Supporting our company’s commitment to education, Perry Ellis International (PEI) has partnered with the Hamilton Career Center, a local vocational technical school, within the school district of Oconee County. The goal is to work with students to develop innovative ideas pertaining to robotics, automation and industrial controls, as well as internship and employment opportunities,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, CEO and president of PEI.
“South Carolina has embraced the environmental and cost saving benefits of solar power,” said Mark Noyes, president and CEO of Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses, Inc.. “Together with Perry Ellis International, we worked to transform 83,000 square-feet of previously-unused rooftop space into a renewable energy power plant that will save the company in energy costs while reducing its environmental footprint.” (RR)
