Pennsauken, NJ – July 13, 2022: Infiniti Energy today announced construction has begun on a new solar array at Puratos USA’s corporate headquarters, located in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
Infiniti Energy, a full-service solar power developer and independent power producer, and Puratos, a global leader in bakery, patisserie and chocolate ingredients and services, found common values in environmental and sustainability goals. Puratos has committed to 100% renewable energy by 2023, an important milestone for a company whose purpose is to move the planet forward by creating innovative food solutions for the health and well-being of people everywhere.’
Infiniti Energy is thrilled to help them move toward this goal in the US.
The US headquarters will house a 450kW solar array, offsetting approximately 70% of its energy needs. With ovens, cooking stations, experience rooms and an innovation center at the site, energy use can be higher than typical headquarters. By choosing to offset much of their energy use with solar through Infiniti Energy, Puratos is removing the equivalent C02 emissions of 224 tons of coal per year.
“Meeting our energy goals with renewable energy while also locking in favorable energy rates is a win-win for our headquarters here in the US. We have been happy to find a partner in Infiniti Energy that aligns with our purpose and supports our commitments to the next generation,” said Andy Brimacombe, President of Puratos USA.
Infiniti Energy is providing engineering, procurement, and construction services and will serve as the long-term owner and operator of the solar array, working with Upper Bay Infrastructure Partners as their financing partner.
“Every solar project Infiniti Energy works on has its own challenges and opportunities. We approach each one with a long-term, client-first focus, giving us the room to do what is best for each client. Working with Puratos USA to meet their corporate ESG goals is why we got into solar – helping the environment while helping clients,” stated Michael Kushner, CEO of Infiniti Energy.
Construction has begun on the solar array and is expected to be fully operational in July 2022.
