ESRI Installs Solar Panels to Generate Power at Headquarters

Redlands, California—February 17, 2009—ESRI recently commissioned the installation of 2,737 rooftop solar panels on three office buildings at its main campus in Redlands as part of its continuing efforts to offset energy usage. The company, founded on a principle of environmental responsibility, is the world's leading developer of geographic information system (GIS) technology.

ESRI's solar energy system will reduce global carbon emissions by more than one million pounds annually, the equivalent of planting 70,000 mature trees. The 195-watt solar panels will produce 533 kW of electricity—enough to power 100 average homes.

"The installation of a solar energy system is one piece in a larger mosaic of ESRI's conservation efforts," said Don Berry, ESRI's director of company operations. "ESRI is dedicated to conserving resources and reducing costs."

In line with its goal to be carbon neutral, ESRI maintains a fleet of electric vehicles and reduces cooling costs with strategically planted shade trees. On a larger scale, ESRI enjoys a history of supporting environmental sustainability. GIS software donated by ESRI is used internationally for myriad conservation projects, from mapping animal and plant habitats to measuring human impact on the ecosystem.

"At ESRI, we have always supported wise and careful allocation of the world's natural resources, and with GIS technology, we've been able to play a role in making sustainable development possible," said Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. "We turn that scope inward, as well, to make environmentally responsible business decisions."
