Pharmaceutical Group Installs Pennsylvania PV System

The Pharmaceutical Sourcing Group Americas (PSGA), a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, has dedicated its new pilot 75 kilowatt solar electric system at the company’s pharmaceutical research facility in Spring House, Pennsylvania.

SPRING HOUSE, Pennsylvania – June 18, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] This solar energy system will produce 78,440 kilowatt hours per year and help reduce the company’s annual energy consumption. The Spring House installation represents the third solar electric project deployed at a Johnson & Johnson company. “The installation of the solar energy system is another example of our efforts to be responsible to the communities in which we operate. We’re very pleased to be helping our region by using Renewable Energy that helps lower costs, reduce pollution and conserve natural resources,” said PSGA vice president Gary Fair. “This system is a tangible commitment to improving the communities in which we work and live.” The installation of the solar energy system facilitates the conversion of sunlight into electricity throughout the main electrical system at the Spring House facility. It is the first such system installed by a Johnson & Johnson company in Pennsylvania and one of three such projects commissioned by a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. The first was installed at Neutrogena in July 2001 in Los Angeles, California and a similar system is being installed at Cordis in Warren, New Jersey.
