ProVia, a leading manufacturer of doors and windows, installed 4,480 solar panels on the roof of their Cherry Ridge manufacturing facility located in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. As one of the largest privately-owned solar energy systems in the state of Ohio, this system is projected to cover 60% of the energy consumption at this facility. This is enough electricity to run about 240 average-sized residential homes each year.
"As we investigated this project, we determined that we could successfully balance a socially responsible choice with economic feasibility, which made solar an excellent solution," said Larry Troyer, the CFO of ProVia. "This is a long-term investment that's good for our company and good for the environment."
This is not ProVia's first solar investment. The company is the owner of solar systems at their Baltic, Sugarcreek, and Walnut Creek facilities. All four systems were installed by Paradise Energy's Ohio branch.
