Zotos Intl. On EPA’s Top 20 On-Site Generation List – ZOTOS

What does a government organization, a major retail conglomerate and a relatively unknown hair care brand have in common?

They each ranked on the EPA’s Top 20 On-Site Generation List.

This list represents those partners generating and consuming the most green power on-site within the Green Power Partnership. These organizations include:

  • U.S. Air Force  for on-site biogas, solar and wind generation
  • Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. for on-site biogas, solar and wind generation
  • Zotos International for on-site wind generation

    Zotos Intl. On EPA’s Top 20 On-Site Generation List

It’s no surprise that the Air Force and Wal-Mart are at the forefront of  wind power, one of the fastest growing forms of new electricity generation in the U.S. However, most consumer brands choose to purchase wind-generated electricity, which is why Zotos is quickly earning recognition for their sustainability efforts.  According to the American Wind Energy Association, the Zotos Wind Project is considered one of the top on-site wind projects currently being undertaken by a manufacturing company in the United States.

“It was a  sizable investment to purchase the wind turbines, but it was a small price to pay when compared to the major benefits it creates for the community of Geneva, NY, and our environment,” says Anthony Perdigao, Zotos Chief Sustainability Officer.

With approximately 6.5 million kWh of electricity produced annually, the Zotos wind turbines will provide more than 50 percent of organization’s energy requirements and are expected to reduce overall CO2 emissions by 50 percent in 2011. Zotos’ energy goal is to utilize 100 percent renewable energy by 2012.
