Executives and employees at Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems in Huntington will Wednesday mark the completion of the company’s first-ever solar array. The system consists of more than 2,600, 450-watt solar panels.
Bendix, which is a division of Germany-based Knorr-Bremse, say the solar installation will be able to produce 1.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
The industrial brake maker says that is enough power to handle 30% of the Huntington plant’s needs and reduce its carbon footprint by 19%.
The global company has committed to cut CO2 emissions in half by 2030.
