Croda Turns to Solar for Atlas Point Facility

October 28, 2013

Croda Inc. recently announced it has broken ground on a $2.3 million solar installation project at the company’s Atlas Point facility in New Castle, Del. The 777-kW project, expected to be completed by year-end, will reside on 2.5 acres of the plant property and will generate approximately 5% of the site’s electricity (equivalent to the power consumed by 130 homes). In addition, the solar panels will reportedly reduce the site’s annual CO2 emission by more than 1.381 million pounds. Croda partnered with EnterSolar to procure solar panels manufactured in Delaware and installed by Delaware labor. 

“Our objective is to make sustainability a point of differentiation for our business,” said Kevin Gallagher, president of Croda. “We are confident this strategy will generate even greater benefits for the environment in which we operate, for the communities of which we are a part, and for the people with whom we work.”
