Sustainability

Energy Efficiency

We strive to improve energy efficiency to reduce our energy consumption and offset our carbon footprint. We've spent $2.2 million on the following projects:

  • 1,580 panel solar roof on our main facility reduces CO2 emissions by 300 tons every year.
  • High-efficiency models replaced outdated machinery in 2014.
  • LED lighting fixtures were implemented in 2017.
  • Tesla charging station was installed in 2017.

ISPA saves 625,000 kWh of energy every year – enough to power a home for 57 years!
