Swissturn/USA is a family-owned manufacturer of fine-precision metal and plastic components in Oxford, MA, comprising 50+ employees.
The company operates “lights out,” meaning the computer-controlled machines keep working even after the employees leave for the day, which leads to boosted electricity costs. Controlling costs without affecting productivity was of high importance to them.
Swissturn partnered with Solect to implement their plan to transition to solar following a recent relocation. The result was a 135.3 kW solar energy system that effectively addressed Swissturn’s energy needs.
A 30% reduction in electricity costs
The system reduced Swissturn’s electricity costs by up to 30% annually, saving the company up to $20,000 yearly, besides generating additional financial benefits through federal and state tax incentives and the sale of SRECs.
