At a ribbon cutting ceremony, Engineering Services and Products Co. (ESAPCO) is officially unveiling the solar energy system that will power a large portion of its operation in Dyersville, Iowa. Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg will give a speech at the event, which will be held at the company’s manufacturing facility on November 10 at 11:00 a.m.

In partnership with Eagle Point Solar, headquartered in Dubuque, Iowa, the company recently completed a 450.56-kWDC roof-mounted solar energy array. The system will offset 110% of the energy usage of the company’s I-beam manufacturing facility.

“FarmTek will benefit by saving approximately $50,000.00 per year in energy costs. We will gain knowledge in the use of solar power as a starting point in reducing our carbon footprint, as well as planning for our future expansions in a sustainable manner,” said Dave Buchheit, VP of operations for ESAPCO.

The new system is the latest effort by FarmTek to adopt renewable and sustainable energy strategies. Solar energy will help reduce the carbon footprint of the framing facility and is another step for ESAPCO in meeting its green initiatives and operational goals.
