Good news for sushi and solar aficionado’s alike. Kikkoman’s soy sauce factory located Folsom California has recently put in a car port solar system to run it’s factory.
Carport solar array installations are becoming more and more popular with businesses as they are
much easier to install, maintain, and make use of space that otherwise would not be used. The solar array installations themselves are mounted in a parking lot and wired to the business taking care of much or all of their power needs.
Another clear advantage for companies is that they will have a clear and well seen example to customers and business partners the level of commitment that the company is going through in order to make better use of clean and renewable energies and utilize state of the art technology to not only save money which will then be passed onto the customer but also the will of the environmentally conscious customer.
I think this is really important, as a consumer I try to use products and lean towards companies that are environmentally responsible as it shows to me a commitment to it’ customers wants and needs. Why is this you might ask? Well to me it’s no longer a world without options. My meaning is that if their is a company who offers you a product then you better believe that there is plenty other company’s offering the same product or service. It’s up to these companies to ensure safe and better business practices to it’s customers. Personally I always take into consideration who I’m doing business with, and just offering a product is not good enough anymore, you need to be offering me a product that I know is good plus the knowledge that I, as in me, am not supporting the destruction of the Eco system out of association.
This is something we will be seeing more and more of and I think it is part of good customer service to not just think of me as money but as someone with needs and ideas.
The Kikkoman carport solar system will generate 150,000 kWh annually and all the renewable energy not consumed will be sold back to the grid which will lower the solar power costs considerably. So next time you’re at your favorite sushi bar rejoice in the fact that the sun was influential in the making of that soy sauce your plunging your unagi in!
