Glass Design Factory Makes Major Investment in Solar Power
Pulp Studio, the leading designers and manufacturers of technically superior architectural decorative glass for commercial markets has long been a leader in recycling of all its water and glass waste, but the company has just made a major commitment in two additional areas: in the later part of 2019 and 2020 the company will be adding the distillation of all paint waste, bundling and recycling of all its paper waste and they’ve just signed a contract for a three million dollar solar panel and battery storage system.
The new solar system should generate daily output in the area of 607.5 kw of power, roughly 40% of the factory’s total daily consumption. Although this new system doesn’t yet completely remove the company from the grid this is a major step in that direction.
“If the annual savings pan out as projected, our intent is to implement additional solar coverage with the goal to remove the facility from the grid completely,” says Bernard Lax, founder and CEO of Pulp Studio.
2019 has been a busy year for the company; they recently introduced a new and technically superior decorative glass product called DermaGlass™, which is a highly durable, lightweight glass strong enough for exteriors and facades as well as interiors. DermaGlass™ is already a boon for projects that want decorative glass but where the weight of heavier glass is prohibitive. Elevator cabs and interior wall panels are two such areas where the product is being implemented.
