Acme-McCrary will hold a press conference on Tuesday January 18 at 12:40 to announce the development of one of the nation's largest solar thermal energy projects to serve their Pritchard Street hosiery facility in Asheboro, North Carolina.
The thermal system features 200 American made solar panels which generate 10,000 gallons of hot water a day for their hosiery and seamless apparel dying processes. The solar project will annually reduce Acme-McCrary's carbon emissions by 249,000 pounds and is believed to be the largest of its kind in the U.S. for industrial and manufacturing applications.
United States Senator Kay Hagan will participate in the announcement of the project beginning at 12:40 PM. Joining Senator Hagan will be North Carolina State Senator Jerry Tillman, Representative Pat Hurley, economic development officials, as well as Acme-McCrary Leadership.
Acme-McCrary invites all its fellow chamber members to join them for this exciting announcement. Weather permitting, the event will be held on the lawn of their Pritchard Street Plant located at 601 E Pritchard Street. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the main doors.
