Nourison’s New Jersey Headquarters Debuts Solar Power


On Nov. 13, 2017, Nourison, producer and importer of handmade area rugs, announced that its corporate location in Saddle Brook, NJ, is going solar. This development reduces Nourison’s carbon footprint and is in support of its initiative to “go green.”’
“As a responsible company, our conscience guides us to make every reasonable effort to protect our environment and our renewable energy efforts support those beliefs,” says Alex Peykar, principal, Nourison.
The New Jersey site will accommodate a kw-dc photovoltaic solar system, capable of producing nearly 770,000 kilowatt hours of electricity its first year, and more than 19 million kilowatt hours over 25 years. In addition to state-sponsored renewable incentives and federal tax credits, choosing solar power as sustainable energy will also help reduce Nourison’s operating costs.
Nourison’s solar installation is expected to be fully operational by December 2017. The project’s development and installation is by Solar Landscape, a New Jersey-based electrical contractor specializing in large commercial solar integration projects.
