In addition, Promega joined a new clean energy initiative with Madison Gas & Electric (MGE) on a 160-acre solar array in Fitchburg, WI. This 20-megawatt (MW) solar array is the largest solar project in Dane County. Promega will purchase 2 MW to supply more than 12% of current annual electrical consumption. O’Brien Solar Fields allow Promega to source over 20% of our current energy needs from renewable sources.
Our new facilities in Waldorf, Germany and Southampton, United Kingdom also use renewable energy and are designed for energy efficiency. Both facilities use ground source heat pumps and incorporate solar arrays to generate electricity on-site. Additional Promega facilities that generate renewable electricity include:
