Harris Tea Co. Installs Second Solar Power System

Harris Tea Co., a packer of tea and beverages, has installed their second solar power system. The 508.8 kW array consists of 2,212 panels installed on the company’s building on New Albany Rd., Moorestown, N.J. and will generate 600,000 kilowatt hours annually offsetting approximately 60 percent of the sites annual power needs.

“The New Jersey building solar power project is another major step forward in integrating our sustainability initiatives, focusing on reducing our carbon footprint and investing in the future of our company, products, and customers.”

Ray Borooah, CEO of Harris Tea said in a prepared statement, “The New Jersey building solar power project is another major step forward in integrating our sustainability initiatives, focusing on reducing our carbon footprint and investing in the future of our company, products, and customers.” As part of Harris Tea’s overall commitment to sustainability, this new initiative is expected to reduce CO2 emission by more than 450 tons annually, equivalent to eliminating the use of 46,000 gallons of gasoline and avoiding 20 million pounds of green house emissions over the life time of the system.

The project was made feasible with New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program. Harris Tea contracted with California based REC Solar, one of the largest U.S. solar electric providers with more than 6,000 systems built nationwide.
