Mini wind turbines to power SC Johnson’s Arkansas office
SC Johnson has plans for a wind energy program at its Lowell, Arkansas sales office. Already known for its use of renewable energy at its manufacturing facilities, the 126 year old company is adding 3 mini wind turbines at its largest U.S. sales office outside of its Racine, Wisconsin global headquarters.
The 3 Swift turbines, manufactured by Cascade Engineering, Inc., will be located on the office roof and will stand 10 to 12 feet above roof level. The turbines are expected to be fully functioning by May 1, 2012.
Once fully operational, the turbines will be connected to the site’s electrical distribution system and will be capable of generating as much as 3,600 kWh of electricity annually.
