Young Living Essential Oils has joined the SharedSolar program from RenewChoice to cut down on energy usage and costs at its distribution center in Spanish Fork, Utah. Through SharedSolar, the distribution center will have access to a communal solar grid that generates clean energy without having to install its own set of solar panels.
Subscribing to this community-based program is part of Young Living’s ongoing sustainability efforts, and is expected to help the company offset 80% of its power usage at the distribution center.
“We’re always trying to find new ways to incorporate sustainability into our practices, and we’re thrilled to be supporting a Utah-based business at the same time,” said Prasad Gankanda, Chief Operating Officer at Young Living. “The SharedSolar program is a revolution in the renewable energy field, making going green more accessible and attainable for companies and residents alike.”
