Deployed as part of the company’s ongoing environmental stewardship
initiative, the 15,600-sf solar power system at Siemon’s headquarters
and North American manufacturing campus has reduced the operation’s
dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

The solar power system joins other sustainability efforts at Siemon,
including a waste management program that recently helped the company
achieve Zero-Landfill status. Siemon recycles or repurposes over 900
tons of waste instead of sending it to landfill, says the company.
