L’Oréal USA: Solar at Kentucky, Arkansas Plants

loreal-usa

L’Oréal USA said this week that it is launching solar projects at its manufacturing facilities in Kentucky and Arkansas and that it is on the verge of exceeding its carbon emissions reduction goals.

The solar projects will be in Florence, KY and North Little Rock, AR. They will be done in partnership with Scenic Hill Solar. The CEO of that company — Bill Halter — is quoted in the release as saying that one of the benefits of the projects will be to cut energy costs to L’Oréal.

L’Oréal USA is the largest subsidiary of the L’Oréal Group, which manufactures beauty products. The goal of the group is to reduce emissions by 60 percent from its 2005 baseline. It is on track, with the solar projects, to achieve 80 percent of that goal. The remaining reductions will be attained in part through the purchase of locally-sourced renewable energy certificates (RECs).

Legoland Florida and Tampa Electric said earlier this year that they are erecting a 2MW solar array at the theme park in Winter Haven.
