Dow Corning power the scoreboard at the Dow Diamond baseball stadium, home
of the Great Lakes Loons in Midland, Michigan, USA.
Dow Corning utilizes more than 1,000 square meters of solar panels at
manufacturing facilities in Wiesbaden, Germany. The panels produce enough
energy to power 35 homes.
Environmentally responsible, sustainable energy solutions to power our
From high-purity solar-grade polysilicon, manufacturers create the solar
photovoltaic (PV) wafers and cells that generate electricity by converting
solar energy – sunlight – into a clean, renewable power source.
|Solar farms are a growing source of renewable
power generation. The recently completed photovoltaic power plant at Nellis Air
Force Base, Nevada, USA, covers 140 acres and generates 14.2 MW of electricity.
Over the next 30 years, it will reduce carbon emissions by 24,000 tons – the
equivalent of removing over 185,000 cars from the roads or planting 260,000
acres of trees. It is currently the largest solar power plant in North
