During the year Benjamin Moore and Constellation Energy inaugurated a new solar power system that is expected to generate 68 percent of the electricity needs for Benjamin Moore's 80,000 square foot product development center and testing laboratories. The solar power system at the company's Flanders, NJ, R&D facility comprises 8,600 crystalline photovoltaic solar panels, making it one of the largest on-site solar power systems in the state. Benjamin Moore & Co. teamed with the retail division of Constellation Energy to develop the 1.7-megawatt system. Under a 20-year solar power purchase agreement, Benjamin Moore is providing the land and will purchase all of the electricity from the solar panels. Constellation Energy will build, own and maintain the system. It estimates that using non-renewable sources to generate the same amount of electricity expected to be produced by the new solar installation would result in the release of tons of carbon dioxide.
