Solar Liberty Installs 2MW Solar System with Cummins, Inc.

Solar Liberty is proud to have worked with Cummins to install a 2MW solar system on their Lakewood NY facility.

Cummins, Inc. is one of only three companies worldwide to win the 2016 Award of Excellence in Energy Management from the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), an active forum of energy ministers from 28 countries. This is the inaugural year of the global Energy Management Awards program sponsored by CEM. The organization also issued its Energy Management Insight Award to 32 companies around the globe, including six U.S. companies: 3M; Curtiss-Wright Electro-Mechanical Corporation; Detroit Diesel; Harbec, Inc.; Schneider Electric; and Nissan North America. All U.S. winners own manufacturing plants certified to the global ISO 50001 standard for energy management systems and to Superior Energy Performance (SEP). The award recipients are honored for helping to build global awareness of the benefits of energy management systems.

“At Cummins, making energy management a standard practice is critical to achieving our goals,” said Alan Resnik, Director of Facilities and Operations Environmental Management. “We’ve implemented global management systems, using processes and tools that enable our employees to be efficient, effective and successful. ISO 50001 has helped Cummins become even better in energy management and it can benefit other companies, too.”

Cummins’ prestigious award is based on a detailed case study describing ISO 50001 implementation, certification, and business benefits across nine of its facilities, including four in the United States, four in the United Kingdom, and one in India. Cummins’ U.S. facilities honored by the top award are the Cummins Engine Plant and Technical Center in Columbus, IN; Rocky Mount Engine Plant in Whitakers, NC; and Jamestown Engine Plant in Lakewood, NY.
