Nashville factory to become the first solar powered facility for Husqvarna Group

The new solar power generation plant has capacity of 1.3 megawatts (1.3 million watts) of solar power, allowing Husqvarna Group to increase its share of electricity from renewable sources of energy, and thereby reduce greenhouse gases and other emissions that incur from electricity generated by coal.

“At Husqvarna Group we are serious about contributing to a low-carbon future and a more sustainable society. Sustainovate is our approach to integrating sustainability into our business. Earlier this year we committed to reduce our CO2 emissions by a third by 2035 compared to 2015. This onsite solar power installation will generate about 25 percent of the annual power required by the Nashville facility”, says Valentin Dahlhaus, SVP Group Operations of Husqvarna Group. “The Nashville initiative is an important example of how we’re putting Sustainovate into action.” 

The construction will begin in the third quarter of 2017, and is projected to be operational by the end of the year. The solar generating system is scalable and has the potential to be expanded in the future.
