Nourison seeks sustainable power switch

nourison goes solarSADDLE BROOK, N.J. – Nourison is going solar. The area rug house of handmade and power-loomed varieties is in the process of accommodating a kW-DC photovoltaic solar system, capable of producing nearly 770,000 kilowatt hours of electricity its first year and more than 19 million kilowatt hours over 25 years.

Expected to be fully operational by next month, this new solar installation was developed and is being installed by Solar Landscape, a N.J.-based electrical contractor specializing in large commercial solar integration projects.

Nourison is making the switch to solar as part of its grander effort to “go green”, the company noted.

“As a responsible company, our conscience guides us to make every reasonable effort to protect our environment and our renewable energy efforts support those beliefs,” said Alex Peykar, principal. “Our work takes us all over the world, and we are proud to work with others on the global push for green energy solutions.”

In addition to state-sponsored renewable incentives and federal tax credits, solar power will also help reduce Nourison’s operating costs, he added.
