ACTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 24, 2020--

Insulet covered its 58,000 square-foot manufacturing facility with approximately 2,800 solar panels, each measuring 5.5 feet long by 3.3 feet wide. During optimal climate conditions, the solar energy generated will have enough capacity to fully support Insulet’s corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility. The Company began the installation in January and received approval to turn on the solar panel system from the Town of Acton earlier this week.

“We understand our responsibility to help protect the environment and this is another important step toward reducing our carbon footprint,” said Chuck Alpuche, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. We are continuously looking to establish and enhance our environmentally and socially responsible best practices as we improve our sustainability measures and focus on our long-term goals.”

Insulet’s solar installation has an energy capacity of 900 kilowatts, enough to power 30 average-sized U.S. homes daily. The Company’s U.S. manufacturing facility began producing sellable product in May 2019 and, among many other strategic benefits, added supplier capabilities closest to its largest customer base and further reduced its carbon footprint.

Insulet’s 2020 Sustainability Report summarizes the Company’s commitment to fostering a sustainable business to support the long-term wellbeing of its customers, employees, and communities. These actions align with the Company’s goal of being a good corporate citizen and making a positive, lasting impact on society.
