DAYVILLE, Conn., Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Miyoshi America President Tim Takagi, today has announced the commissioning of an 842 kW ground mounted solar power generating system with Dynamic Energy Solutions, LLC (“Dynamic Energy”) at Miyoshi America Headquarters and manufacturing facility. The installation, which sits adjacent to their facility, will meet >40% of its electricity demand. By partnering with Dynamic Energy, a full-service solar energy solutions provider, Miyoshi America was able to develop a project from beginning-to-end that embraces solar energy as a pathway to achieving their corporate sustainability goals at a critical time. The resulting onsite solar system encapsulates Miyoshi America’s pledge to manufacturing ingredients for the cosmetics industry that embody a full product lifecycle approach to cleaner, more sustainable products for consumers. As a leading innovator in the scientific development of cosmetic ingredients, this project also reinforces Miyoshi America’s commitment to using technology to reduce the impact of energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process. By using solar technology to reduce their CO2 emissions and increase the adoption of renewable energy, Miyoshi America is promoting environmental conservation and an offset to traditional grid-supplied electricity.

“The Miyoshi Kasei Group’s goal is to provide products and services that offer peace of mind and safety to consumers and that are friendly to both society and the environment. We are committed to implementing initiatives that will protect the environment in harmony with local communities,” said Tim Takagi, President of Miyoshi America.
The ground mounted solar system installed by Dynamic Energy is set to be fully operational in January of 2021 and is comprised of 2,160 high efficiency solar panels. It is expected to generate over 1.13 Megawatt hours of electricity in its first year. This is enough electricity to offset approximately 798 metric tons (1,758,237 pounds) of carbon dioxide, equivalent to removing 172 cars from Connecticut’s roads, or the amount of carbon sequestered by 1,042 acres of U.S. forest each year.
“As consumers and end-use stakeholders continue to put increasing focus on how sustainability and environmental practices relate with the products that we all use, The Miyoshi Kasei Group has raised the bar to meet this critical objective, leading by example to help meet today’s global priorities as a world-class corporate citizen” said Tim Carr, Vice President of Business Development at Dynamic Energy. “By converting otherwise dormant space into this facility asset, Miyoshi has successfully created a sustainability centerpiece for the Killingly community, as well as stabilized their electrical costs for decades to come. We commend Miyoshi for their forward-thinking and collaborative approach to this project and look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come.”
