New England’s Largest Plastic Box Manufacturer Sets Standards for Renewable Practices
In 2016, Alpha Rho decided to make a change—a change in our sustainability initiatives that will help us become an industry leader for manufacturing companies interested in renewable energy. After completing a rigorous cost benefit analysis, we decided to up the ante on our commitment to the environment and social issues. So, in July of 2016, Alpha Rho became more than just a manufacturer of plastic boxes, we became a producer of solar energy. This transition was made possible by New England Clean Energy, the company that installed 745 Canadian Solar 320-watt panels, with SolarEdge optimizers, on the roof of Alpha Rho’s 36,000-square-foot facility. This new system produces 238.4-kilowatts of power and has truly revolutionized our energy usage.
