What clean energy benefits can you accomplish in 1,000 days? With the help of 3,000 solar panels installed on our company buildings and a set of green practices at our headquarters, we figured out the answer: Quite a lot, and with room to grow.
Since its installation in 2012, SHI’s solar energy array has generated more than 1.6 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of clean, renewable energy.

And that doesn’t even take into account the 1,600 or so rooftop panels installed at our software and hardware integration center. The solar panels on this site create enough energy to account for almost half of the building’s energy usage.
In less than three years, our solar panels have generated a considerable amount of energy, and the amounts of greenhouse gases and other compounds we’ve avoided is also staggering: Continue Reading…
