U.S. Circuit Goes Green with Solar and LED Installation


Reading time ( words)

U.S. Circuit has just completed a $1 million installation of a 251 kWh solar system covering their entire parking lot.

This system makes U.S. Circuit one of a kind within the U.S. PCB fabrication industry. With this massive green effort, U.S. Circuit looks to save the company about 20% on their electric bill, with the side benefit of providing shaded covered parking for their employees. 

To further their green effort, U.S. Circuit has also converted all of their internal and external lighting systems to 480 LED fixtures.

U.S. Circuit President Mike Fariba stated, “With all the impact to the environment and our fuel sources these days, we felt the need to do our part to reduce our own footprint. Going green has taken time and presented some challenges up front but we’re confident that our efforts will provide great benefit for both the environment and U.S. Circuit for years to come.”

I’ve visited Eagle before; they are endlessly busy, with good things going on, so I was happy when I learned that Brett McCoy was now COO and another fellow had taken over some of the sales and marketing activities. Andy comes with a wealth of experience and seems to have settled in nicely.
