Patrick Yarns' Solar-Powered Plant Produces Eco-Friendly Yarns

Our solar installation was the largest private Photo Voltonic installation in the Charlotte area.
Patrick Yarns continues to lead the industry in our commitment to environmental stewardship and to our community.

So as we like to say, our yarns are truly: SPUN BY THE SUN®.

Located on the roof of our Clevemont Facility, the system features:

140,000 kWh/year clean photovoltaic power
Enough to power 14 average homes.
       Equivalent to 11,310 gallons of gasoline
234 barrels of oil and 2578 trees planted.

  The mounting hardware was manufactured locally, reducing the carbon footprint even more.
