WTI Inc. expands plant with new solar energy system
As part of its ongoing commitment to its community and the environment, WTI is pleased to announce the completion of a new state-of-the-art solar panel energy generation system at their headquarters in Georgia. 1,610 solar panels were installed that generate approximately 40% - 45% of WTI’s energy usage.
“This project reinforces WTI’s dedication to environmental conservation, while serving our customers and being a good corporate neighbor”, said Wolfgang Ludwig, Owner and CEO of WTI.
In addition to the solar expansion, WTI installed a super sack system in its dry blending department. Instead of 50 empty sacks per pallet going to waste, there is just one sack. This new system along with WTI’s comprehensive recycling plan, enable WTI to reduce its waste by 70%. Installing LED lights and timers throughout its facility, purchasing fuel efficient company vehicles, and using energy efficient heating and cooling units add to WTI’s commitment to go green.
