H. Hirschmann LTD is now supplementing our production energy usage with renewable solar clean energy to produce our premium custom wood windows and doors. Same Sun of Vermont designed and installed a 15 KW photovoltaic (PV) solar energy system next to our manufacturing plant in West Rutland, VT. Our system is expected to produce 21,450 kWhs of clean energy per year and will offset more than 300 tons of carbon in its life cycle.
