MIDDLETOWN, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–altafiber is pleased to announce the completion of a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) array at its Middletown, Ohio, location that will deliver net-zero carbon emissions after a year of operation.

Appalachian Renewable Power (ARP Solar) designed and installed the solar system, which is comprised of 184 panels that will annually produce around 116,000 kilowatt-hours of power. The solar array is designed to produce enough power to offset 100 percent of power used in the building over the course of a year.

The installation is part of altafiber’s climate action plan, which targets a 40% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030. The company’s ultimate goal is to reduce GHG emissions intensity to net-zero by 2040, matching the commitment of its parent company, Macquarie Asset Management.

Behind the scenes, our fiberoptic Internet and video technology in Middletown is powered by sunshine,” said Nadja Turek, altafiber’s Director of Sustainability. “This is an example of how we are growing to serve new customers in new areas, without growing our carbon footprint.”
