We do not just focus on finan­cial prosperity…we focus on envi­ron­men­tal pros­per­i­ty, too. 

 In an effort to tru­ly mod­el the need for a more sus­tain­able oper­a­tion, we will begin the tran­si­tion this week to 100% renew­able ener­gy with the instal­la­tion of a solar pan­el sys­tem on the roof of our Belle­vue Ken­tucky office.

The sav­ings here are spec­tac­u­lar: in the first year of our ener­gy-effi­cient oper­a­tion, the solar pan­el will pro­duce an esti­mat­ed 26,610 kilo­watt-hours. This is equiv­a­lent to 2,117 gal­lons of gaso­line con­sumed or 20,731 pounds of coal burned.

“We sim­ply can­not deny the need to take the sta­tus and longevi­ty of our phys­i­cal envi­ron­ment more seri­ous­ly, and we have always want­ed to do our part in mak­ing sure Belle­vue and the Cincin­nati region remain at the fore­front of inno­va­tion and envi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­i­ty. We hope that by mak­ing this invest­ment in the health of our com­mu­ni­ty, our fel­low busi­ness­es and even indi­vid­ual mem­bers of soci­ety will see this as an option to improve the way we live and work,” said Mack­ey McNeill, Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer, MACKEY. McNeill has also made the shift to 100% renew­able ener­gy on her own farm.

The solar pan­el instal­la­tion began last week and was com­plet­ed on Tues­day, March 3rd. A ren­der­ing of the fin­ished prod­uct can be seen below. Solar Ener­gy Solu­tions will be con­duct­ing the instal­la­tion and applauds MACKEY for tak­ing this step toward sustainability.
