Dynamic Energy to cover Rondo-Pak New Jersey carton facility with rooftop solar

Nov. 4, 2021
Over 25 years, the system will generate approximately 52.6 million kWh of carbon-free electricity

Printer and carton manufacturer Rondo-Pak will invest more than $4 million in an on-site solar power project at its Camden, New Jersey, operations.

The company selected Dynamic Energy LLC to provide the solar panel system. Once installed, according to Dynamic Energy, the system will provide 2.2 million kWh of carbon-free electricity annually.

The rooftop solar array and carports will cover the entire facility and over 90 percent of the parking lots. Over 25 years, the system will generate approximately 52.6 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and is expected to provide at least 60% of the electricity needs at the facility.

"This solar energy project is exciting for Rondo-Pak as it represents a major milestone in our continuous pursuit to reduce our carbon footprint and make positive contributions to the environment," said Tim Moreton, Chief Executive Officer of Rondo-Pak. "Working hand-in-hand with Dynamic Energy, we expect to maximize our electricity savings. Our driving force in this initiative is to do our part in creating a more sustainable future for our community."

Dynamic Energy will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. Construction commenced in October.

In 2015, Rondo-Pak purchased its current Camden facility and completed a major renovation which was designed following the New Jersey Green Building Standards and ASHRAE requirements. All recent equipment investments are made with sustainability being a primary factor in the equipment selection.
