JLS Mailing

JLS Mailing Services is one of New England’s largest presort mailing and printing companies, founded in 1918. Today, JLS Mailing Services carries on the traditions established by its founder and is an industry leader in providing mailing, document management and direct marketing solutions to businesses and marketers.


As a company that requires a great deal of electricity to operate their digital copiers, inserters, folders and presort equipment, JLS was looking for a way to reduce their substantial energy costs and wanted to find a solution that was also a smart business decision.


JLS decided to pursue a solar solution to reduce operating costs and differentiate their business with a green, sustainable initiative. After interviewing three potential solar installers, JLS Mailing chose to partner with Solect Energy.


80% reduction of electricity costs

With a 537 kW array installed on the roof of their Brockton, MA office, JLS Mailing is projected to cover up to 80% of their electricity costs, saving $93,000 per year. The company is also able to take advantage of state and federal tax incentives, and the sale of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs).
