Moore & Giles is going solar! In fact, they just completed the installation of a state-of-the-art solar energy system to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainability throughout the leather industry.
By harnessing the power of the sun, Moore & Giles seeks to minimize its reliance on non-renewable energy sources, contributing to a cleaner, greener future. The decision to embrace solar energy aligns seamlessly with the company’s core values and unwavering dedication to sustainable practices.
Implemented across Moore & Giles’ facilities in Lynchburg, Virginia, the new solar energy system boasts cutting-edge photovoltaic technology. The extensive array of solar panels, strategically positioned on rooftops and suitable areas, empowers the company to generate a substantial amount of clean energy. Notably, this innovative initiative not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also significantly reduces the company’s dependence on traditional electricity grids.
Beverly McAuley, the senior director of Sustainability and Education at Moore & Giles, expressed excitement about the transition, stating: “We are thrilled to announce our shift to solar. At Moore & Giles, we remain steadfast in our commitment to responsible business practices, and this momentous move underscores our dedication to the environment.
