Twincraft Skincare Invests in Vermont Solar Power
From our wide range of bar soap offerings to our cutting edge developments in the liquid skincare market, at Twincraft Skincare, we have established ourselves as an innovator in our industry. This commitment to innovation doesn’t stop at developing new products or manufacturing processes, though. We are always looking for ways to drive our industry forward in a more sustainable way, and we are proud to announce that in this spirit, we have partnered with SolarSense to make alternative energy sources the primary power provider for our administrative and production facilities.
We have contracted for two remote-sited solar projects, both of which are interconnected to Green Mountain Power. The power produced by these two projects will offset approximately 70% of our total electric expenses at our Winooski and Essex facilities. The remaining amount is powered by hydroelectric energy.
And we’re in good company – last year, our next door neighbor city of Burlington became America’s first all-renewable-energy city, and Vermont as a whole has a goal to obtain 90% of the state’s energy from renewable resources by 2050. This switch results in reduced fossil fuel use, cleaner air, and keeps the Green Mountain State just that – green.
Twincraft has worked exclusively with SolarSense as the projects’ developer, investor, and long-term owner/operator. This company helps commercial- and industrial-scale clients reduce their energy demand and supply costs, and it was a natural fit for us to work with a company that understood our goal of being more sustainable in a financially viable way.
“We applaud and celebrate Twincrafts’ commitment to sustainability as part of their mission to innovate, formulate, create, and partner.” said Chris Fraga, Founder and CEO of SolarSense.
