Gardner Publications – Cincinnati, Ohio
Gardner Publications is a leading publisher of trade magazines related to the machining industry. Gardner took advantage of the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) Rebate Program as well as entered into a unique arrangement with Entero to sell its in state Ohio solar renewable energy credits (SRECs). Entero works with PJM Gats to log the SRECs and then sells the SRECs to Ohio utilities and other buyers. Gardner’s motivation for purchasing solar was to reduce its electrical expenditures as well as lower its carbon footprint. Gardner used adjacent land to its corporate headquarters for this ground mount system.
