Project expected to save TVH more than $110,000 annually in energy costs.

Olathe, Kan. – Foley has collaborated with Cromwell Solar to design, install, and commission a 1.036 MW system. It will include 2,800 Cat photovoltaic solar modules at TVH’s new 250,000 square-foot warehouse expansion at its Americas headquarters in Olathe, Kan.

TVH executives expect the system to save more than $110,000 annually in energy costs, while supporting a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of nearly 3.5 million pounds in the first year. Over the next 25 years, the system is expected to contribute to more than 79 million pounds in reduced carbon dioxide emissions.

This month, the solar rooftop installation at TVH was recognized with a Gold Award in the Kansas City Industrial Council’s annual Sustainability Award program.

“Foley and Cromwell have had a successful business relationship and worked with several industrial customers like TVH,” said James Kerschinske, sales manager at Foley Power Solutions. “Businesses are looking at ways to control their utility costs and improve their energy resiliency, and solar is one way to do this.”

“As the world’s largest enterprises expand their sustainability initiatives, Caterpillar and the Cat dealer network are poised to deliver the advanced technologies and deep application expertise that support our customers’ operational needs while improving the business case for environmentally friendly programs,” said Bart Myers, general manager for Caterpillar Large Electric Power Solutions.
