Thule's Solar Panels Up and Running

Published September 23, 2008

SEYMOUR, CT (BRAIN)—After a year of planning, the 318-kilowat solar array on the roof of Thule’s Connecticut facility is officially live.

The array, which consists of over 1,800 solar panels, will offset about 26 percent of the energy used at Thule’s Seymour manufacturing and office facility.

“If you think of our 26 percent offset in electricity in terms of products, it is the same as saying that every carrier, in the bicycle product group, is now made with solar power,” said Tripp Wyckoff, Thule’s vice president of marketing, sales and service.
