Dramm Completes Solar Panel Installation at New Headquarters
The Dramm Corp. recently announced it has completed the installation of 286 solar panels at its new headquarters in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The 18,000 sq. ft. ground-mount solar panels produce an annual energy savings of 161,990 kilowatts.
“Dramm Corp. is very excited to include a large solar photovoltaic (PV) array on the site of our new facility,” said Hans Dramm, president. “The Dramm Corp. is committed to being a good steward of ecological conservation. The roots of our business are planted in the goal of conserving water for the horticulture industry. The addition of solar PV enhances our long-term commitment to saving energy and being environmentally conscious. We expect the array to provide at least 90% of our annual energy needs with options for future growth. The panels are dual-sided, which adds to their efficiency by allowing for the collection of photovoltaic energy refracting from the ground and collected from direct contact. It’s all very cool!”
The new headquarters, located in the Manitowoc Industrial Park, began construction in May 2021. The warehouse is complete, and the office building is currently being built. Completion is scheduled for the late summer.
