EnterSolar, a commercial solar developer, completed a 461-kilowatt rooftop solar installation at Konica Minolta Healthcare’s headquarters in Wayne, New Jersey. The solar system will generate an estimated 541,645 kWh of clean energy annually, equivalent to matching nearly 90% of the facility’s onsite electricity usage.
“We are proud to have partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare on this noteworthy solar project at their headquarters. We hope to see other companies follow their lead to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and work towards a more sustainable future,” said Peyton Boswell, managing director at EnterSolar.
