Tweezerman Launches Solar Project

TweezermanIn an effort to take steps toward global sustainability, Tweezerman added a solar power generating system. The Solar Project is comprised of 954 solar panels and 12 transformerless, string inverters installed by SUNation Solar Systems. “The Tweezerman management team and family of employees consider the Solar Project and our commitment to social responsibility through cleaner energy a major return on investment in developing sound business practices that contribute not only to the sustainable prospects of our company, but of our planet’s future and a better world,” says chief financial officer Frank Stotzem. The New York-based brand has made a commitment to clean, renewable energy, pledging to its neighbors on Long Island that a business can have a positive impact on its community by reducing its local carbon footprint. The Solar Project has been fully operational for a month, and with it Tweezerman produces an estimated 60 percent of the power it uses from the sun. According to SUNation Solar Systems, the reduction of carbon is comparable to up to 825,000 auto miles not driven, 968 barrels of oil conserved, 9,205 trees grown, and 791,000 pounds of C02 emissions avoided. “We’re very proud to be helping this wonderful organization achieve its global sustainability goals,” says Mike Bailis, cofounder of SUNation Solar Systems. “This is such an environmentally positive step.”
