SOUTHBRIDGE, MA — Throughout its history, Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS) has used leading edge technologies to ensure its products offer the best quality, produced in the most effective manner. During this, its 140th anniversary year, Hyde continues to look to advanced technologies to help run its operations more efficiently today and into the future.
Hyde has installed a solar array on the roof over its shipping and warehouse buildings to generate electricity that will help run its office and plant facilities and equipment. Comprised of more than 850 panels utilizing “smart reflector” technology, the company estimates that the 338 kW system will generate between 15-20% of its electric consumption.
“There are distinct benefits to our operation, and, ultimately, down the line for our customers. This will assist us in remaining competitive in all facets of our business well into the future.” said Rob Scoble, President, Hyde IBS. “There is also the greater-good benefit of reducing our carbon footprint as a responsible corporate citizen.”
