Solar energy project built at Estee Lauder
MMA Renewable Ventures, LLC and DT Solar installed a 600-kilowatt solar energy system for the Estee Lauder Companies Inc. The newly completed photovoltaic system generates energy for Estee Lauder’s manufacturing operations and helps contribute to a healthier environment.
The new solar energy system incorporates more than 3,000 solar panels installed atop a facility that manufactures Estee Lauder’s Aramis brand.
Expected to generate over 650,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually, the solar energy system will offset production of more than 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide over its expected 25-year lifetime, the equivalent of approximately 34,000 barrels of oil being replaced by clean energy from the sun.
The decision to implement this project is part of the Estee Lauder Companies’ commitment to protect the environment.
Located in Oakland, New Jersey, the project marks one of New Jersey’s largest rooftop-mounted solar installations, as well as the largest third-party solar energy supply contract in the state.
