Promega Corporation now draws over 20% of its global electricity from renewable sources. The 2022 Promega Corporate Responsibility Report, released today, details how the biotechnology company’s investments in solar arrays have led to a ten-fold increase in renewable energy usage in the last three years. The report also outlines how Promega continues to support its employees and local communities while developing technologies aimed at improving human life through scientific advancement.
The company’s three largest solar arrays, all located on the main Madison, Wisconsin campus, generate over 2 million kWh annually. Promega also partnered last year with Madison Gas & Electric’s O’Brien Solar Fields project to supply Promega with renewable energy to power more than 10% of its annual electrical consumption. Additional Promega facilities around the world generate or purchase renewable energy, including branch offices in Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
