Warminster, PA - Astro-Dynamic Print & Graphic Services, Inc. leads the way for green energy in the graphics industry by installing solar panels. The project was completed on Friday, March 25, 2011. The solar array, consisting of more than 250 solar panels, will generate significant energy savings, while lowering carbon dioxide emissions. Astro-Dynamic is now the leader in green energy in the Bucks County area as they are the area's only solar-powered printing company.
Astro-Dynamic will produce in excess of 75,000 kilowatts of electricity annually, which will replace 75% of their electrical consumption. This commitment to green energy will save over 52 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, an equivalent of 10 passenger vehicles, over 6 residences' electrical usage, and 11 acres of pine forests.
"I'm thrilled to be leading the way in our market for green print and communications. This is by far the best "feel good" project I have been involved with. Our solar energy production is something our employees, clients and community can feel good about. To think that 75% or more of our electrical usage will be provided by the sun, a self-sustaining, renewable resource, brings a big smile to my face. Most people don't realize that print is also a renewable resource. 1.7 million trees are planted each day by the U.S. paper and forest products industry. By combining that with our solar powered facility, we have created an unbelievable green communications vehicle," said Darrel Dundore, President of Astro-Dynamic.
"The development of the solar market in Pennsylvania has, for the first time, made solar a prudent economic and environmental option for mid and large sized commercial entities," said Michael Perillo, President and CEO of Dynamic Solar. "Astro Dynamic will benefit from converting a variable and rising energy cost with a fixed cost, while the larger community will profit from the environmental benefits of generating electricity from renewable resources."
As a leader in green advancements in the community, Astro-Dynamic is committed to helping others. "I want to help our community make changes that have a positive impact on our environment. My door is always open to any local business that might have questions or an interest in how we made this undertaking a reality," said Darrel Dundore, President of Astro-Dynamic
