We’re pleased to share that our Go Green commitment is beginning to reach beyond the walls of our business and help create renewable energy for communities that we serve. For the past couple years, TWC has invested in solar deployments in Southern California, North Carolina, and Hawaii. In the last year, we have amplified our commitment with partnerships that will generate over 13 megawatts (MW) of solar power. Just to give you an idea of how much 13 MW actually is, it’s equal to powering over 600 homes in one year. Through this effort, we’re facilitating the generation of green energy that is put on the grid for our operations and customers alike to use. Here are some examples of solar efforts underway:

  • At our Charlotte campus, pictured above and below, we’ve supplemented our 500 kilowatt (kW) roof mounted system with a new, ground mounted 400 kW system surrounding the data center.
  • In the Central New York area, we’re bringing 12 MW of solar energy through remote net metering in local farm fields.
  • In Indio, CA we are working to bring on over 500kW through the use of our facility roof and parking canopies.
  • In Hawaii, we are bringing on a 30 kW system at our Waimanalo hub site and a 330 kW solar carport system coupled with a battery storage system at our Kona facility.

We’re also encouraging our employees to make green lifestyle choices.  TWC has partnered with three solar companies to offer employees up to a $1,500 discount on solar energy for their homes. This is just one more step forward in demonstrating our commitment to “Go Green!”

There is great progress being made in our “Go Green” initiative at TWC.  We have seen encouraging results over the past few years and will continue our work to make a positive impact for our planet. Check out my other 3BL post to learn more about our progress.
