CDF Corporation, a leading manufacturer of drum, pail, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, is cutting its energy costs with a solar power system from Independence Solar.
Since 1971, CDF Corporation has been an industry leader in sustainable packaging and environmental awareness. We continue to lead this initiative in an effort to make all facets of our organization environmentally friendly, sustainable and energy efficient. Investing in solar electricity is another step CDF is taking to become 100% sustainable.
Initially CDF Corporation invested in 8,200 solar panels for the Cheer Pack manufacturing facility in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. With that success, Independence Solar installed 2,500 solar panels at CDF’s headquarters in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The solar panels at CDF generate approximately 20% of the electricity used for manufacturing. On weekends and holidays, when CDF is not manufacturing product, the power goes out to the grid to be used by other companies in the Plymouth area. CDF’s effort to expand its solar power usage in Massachusetts demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.
Mark Kasberg, Chief Financial Officer at CDF Corporation, commented, “Solar electricity is not only good for the environment, but it is also good for the company. It is keeping our costs down. “
