Movement from green tea to green power

 

FAIRFIELD, Conn., August 14, 2007Bigelow Tea (http://bigelowtea.com), the family-run tea company based in Fairfield, Connecticut, welcomed Governor Jodi Rell to the site of their new solar installation as she introduced the most comprehensive energy efficiency bill in Connecticut’s history. Living up to the “Do One Thing” program’s call for conserving energy, Bigelow’s solar installation is the state’s second largest, and it will provide 10% – 20% of the facility’s power demand each year.

This movement toward green energy features 880 solar modules on the building’s roof and was a project of particular importance to Mr. Bigelow, co-chairperson of the Bigelow Tea board, since its inception. The incorporation of alternative energy sources – solar panels – reduces energy costs associated with lighting and running the facility while benefiting the environment. The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) helped support this $1.5 million initiative by assisting with funding.

“Bigelow Tea is proud to welcome such a notable alternative energy initiative,” said Cindi Bigelow, co-President. “Just as Governor Rell is calling upon businesses and individuals within the state to do their part, Bigelow Tea feels passionate about taking an active step toward greening Connecticut and helping protect Planet Earth.”

The roof’s solar panels will eliminate approximately five million pounds of carbon dioxide every year, equivalent to planting 33 acres of trees.
