Reducing our carbon footprint at ACS!
In our continuous efforts to reduce our carbon footprint on campus, we installed solar panels on the rooftops of our facilities last summer. This week, we were finally able to connect to the solar panel/photovoltaic system during a brief electrical outage. We anticipate the payback time on electricity to be approximately 3 years. This sets a great example to our community and we hope it gets us all thinking about ways to reduce, recycle and reuse!
