In order to minimize its carbon footprint Dun-Rite is turning an otherwise mineable field, at the Vineland facility, into a 6800 panel, 1.6 mega-watt solar array. This will enable Dun-Rite to lessen its dependency on fossil fuels while helping reduce the peak demand on Vineland electric.

The project, started in early march 2011, is expected to be complete by the end of May 2011.
