New Solar Energy System Produces Clean Green Power for the Company’s Operations

SAN DIEGO, CA — May 27, 2010 — Solimar Systems, Inc., a leading global provider of production printing and secure document delivery solutions, today announced the details of their environmentally-friendly solar energy installation located on the rooftop of their San Diego, California headquarters building.

One of the first of its kind in downtown San Diego, Solimar’s photovoltaic (PV) solar installation is a 55kW (DC)/ 49kW (AC) system and is expected to produce 80,489kWh of locally produced, clean, renewable electricity each year. The system’s 25-year operational offset is expected to eliminate:

  • 1,704 tons of CO2 (the leading greenhouse gas)
  • 4.7 tons of NOX (which creates smog)
  • 6.3 tons on SO2 (which causes acid rain)

The Solimar solar energy installation is the environmental equivalent of:

  • 29 acres of trees planted
  • 5,756,829 automobile miles not driven

The PV solar system represents a renewable energy source that is consistent with Solimar’s ecoActive™ initiative. This initiative focuses on safeguarding the environment by developing and deploying award winning output management software solutions that optimize document delivery processes and enable Solimar customers to reduce their carbon footprint by reducing paper use, electricity, printer chemicals, gasoline, and CO2 emissions.

“Solimar’s new solar system helps us to generate clean sustainable electricity,” said Todd Sprague, Chief Operating Officer for Solimar Systems. “By harnessing the power of the earth’s most abundant natural resource – the sun – we feel we are doing our part in combatting global warming and increasing our nation’s supply of renewable energy sources.”
