Solar Power


In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, Allied Machine and Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing cutting tools for the metal-cutting industry, announces the installation of solar panels at its Deeds Drive facility in Dover, Ohio.

This solar panel project will impact numerous areas of the environment. Not only will the solar panels offset 1,112 tons of CO2 per year, which is the estimated amount of carbondioxide that will not be released into the air, but installing solar panels is also equivalent to planting 25,878 trees. Trees consume CO2, so the project is reducing the CO2 emitted to the air equivalent to the CO2 consumption of 25,878 trees. Lastly, in order to diversify our energy sources, this project will prevent the consumption of 2,345 barrels of oil due to the use of solar energy sources instead of conventional electric generation sources such as coal or natural gas.

On the solar panel project, Ross Randazzo, director of operation excellence, shares that “We’ve been wanting to do this for over 10 years and finally have the opportunity to do so. Installing solar panels aligns with Allied’s environmental stewardship,and we plan to continue to reduce our carbon footprint with future projects.”

Recycling

Allied Machine also focuses on recycling paper and cardboard as well as steel. Between the two Ohio facilities, 11,756 pounds of paper and 166 gross tons of steel turnings, chips, etc. have been recycled. Ultimately, these projects demonstrate Allied’s dedication to environmental change
