Nanmac gets green with solar panels

On Sept. 5, a maker of thermocouples turned on its new solar array, which the company says will generate enough power to supply 60% of the energy needed for its U.S. HQ and manufacturing operations. The energy-conscious organization is Nanmac Corp. (Framingham, MA; www.nanmac.com), and it celebrated the switch-flipping at a ceremony with Governor Deval Patrick, State Sen. Karen Spilka, Local Representative Pam Rich­ardson, and State Secretary of Energy Ian Bowles in attendance.

During the ceremony, Nanmac’s president Dan Nanigian spoke of the last five years in the history of the 50-year-old company as “the most difficult but most rewarding,” referring to challenges with material, labor, and energy costs contrasted with Nanmac’s 400% growth in exports.

The manufacturer of temperature sensors and related products says it will reduce both its energy bills and greenhouse gases through use of the solar panels.
