Updated Thursday 11 August, 2011
Paul deLima Co., Inc., Cicero, New York today announced the installation of an 8kW Solar Farm to supply renewable energy to its coffee roasting plant located at 8550 Pardee Road; Cicero, New York (located adjacent to Interstate 81; north of Exit 30).

deLima President, Michael Garlick announced the installation of the deLima Solar Farm, stating, “Paul deLima Co., Inc. is pleased to announce another exciting renewable energy initiative. The installation of an 8kW Solar Farm at our Roasting Plant in Cicero will serve as further evidence of the commitment our company and its dedicated employees have made to being the most efficient and environmentally friendly purveyor of fine coffee products in the world.”

Mr. Garlick added, “Many companies talk about going green, at Paul deLima Co., Inc. we truly believe. In the past two years we have installed a wind turbine, and an energy efficient lighting system. We have diverted thousands of pounds of waste from local landfills by improving our waste and recycling operations and we have entered into an innovative program with SUNY ESF to use our coffee grounds to produce energy. Today, we have installed a solar farm. On behalf of our employees, we are proud to say that when it comes to our commitment to the environment, we believe our actions will pay dividends to our customers, vendors, and the community.”

The 8kW Solar Farm being employed by Paul deLima is supplied by Warner Energy LLC, the same company that installed the 10kW Wind Turbine on the property nearly two years ago. Warner Energy LLC, located in Liverpool, NY sells and installs solar farms to commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential clients. The 8kW deLima Solar Farm is the second solar farm installation completed by Warner Energy in Central New York this month (the other is at the Warner Energy LLC headquarters, 7526 Morgan Road in the Town of Clay). The 8kW deLima Solar Farm and the 10kW deLima Wind Turbine will work in tandem to offset a portion of power required to operate the Paul deLima Co., Inc. roasting facility and have a combined potential generating capacity of 18kW of power. Paul deLima Co. is currently working with National Grid to obtain approval for an Interconnection Agreement which will allow excess power generated by the deLima Solar Farm to be exported to the power grid and used by other National Grid customers as well.

”Producing renewable energy on-site has great value for our company, our employees and our customers. By purchasing Paul deLima coffee products, our loyal customers can experience the enjoyment of our great coffee products, and also gain satisfaction with the knowledge that they are actively participating in helping to create a cleaner environment and by utilizing products produced from a company committed to reducing its carbon footprint and utilizing natural sources for clean energy.”

Paul deLima Co., Inc. is one of the largest coffee roasters in the Northeast. Upon completion of coffee roasting and packaging, deLima products are sent to the deLima Distribution Center located on Morgan Road; Liverpool, New York where the product is prepared for shipment throughout the United States.
