SMC Powers Up with HSI Solar: Inaugurates State-of-the-Art Solar Field at North American Headquarters

SMC, a global leader in manufacturing automation components, has marked a significant milestone in its corporate sustainability initiatives with the activation of its cutting-edge solar field, developed in collaboration with Indianapolis-based HSI Solar. This eco-friendly implementation is one of the pioneering steps in a multi-phase sustainability project undertaken at SMC’s North American headquarters.

As SMC continues to champion environmental responsibility, the company remains dedicated to setting the standard for sustainable automation and reducing its carbon footprint. The solar field emphasizes SMC’s commitment to environmental responsibility by generating clean, renewable energy on-site, powering the company’s operations.

“Our solar field showcases SMC’s dedication to prioritizing sustainability not only in our products, but through our operations as well. By harnessing solar energy at our North American headquarters, we are taking a significant step towards achieving our long-term environmental objectives and contributing to a greener future,” said SMC Sustainability Manager Tyler Turner about the importance of this project in the context of SMC’s broader goals.

The newly operational system is projected to produce an estimated 1.4 gigawatt-hours of energy annually, a substantial contribution to SMC’s green energy portfolio. This milestone not only reinforces SMC’s commitment to sustainable practices but also positions the company as a leader in environmental stewardship within the automation engineering and manufacturing sector.

SMC President, CEO Kelley Stacy expressed enthusiasm about the completion of the first phase of the solar field, stating, “At SMC, we recognize the imperative to adopt sustainable practices and reduce our environmental impact. The activation of our solar field is a momentous occasion, highlighting our commitment to clean energy and setting the stage for further advancements in sustainable initiatives within our community.”

Looking ahead, SMC plans to build upon the success of the current solar field, with an expansion slated for 2024. This strategic move is part of their ongoing efforts to aggressively pursue sustainable practices and further integrate renewable energy solutions into its operations.
