Sustainability Stories


Solar Canopy Project


The new solar canopy, electric vehicle charging stations and solar picnic tables are visible demonstrations of Southwire’s commitment to carbon zero through its actions and products. The renewable energy generated from the solar canopy is connected to the campus electrical system, which feeds the EV charging stations. The solar picnic tables collect energy from the sun in solar panels integrated into the umbrella. This electricity is stored in a battery system which provides power to operate built-in lighting over the table and to charge laptops, phones, and other devices.
