Windmills Power Mohawk Paper Mills

Mohawk Paper Mills are the only paper mills in the U.S. to use wind energy to manufacture paper. The energy comes from wind farms in upstate New York and Pennsylvania. Wind now provides 21% of the total power for its two mills in New York and 50% of the annual power required for the Beckett Mill in Ohio. George Milner, a company spokesperson said: "There is a misconception that choosing the environmentally correct path costs a lot more but with the technological advances in windmills, the cost of wind power is within range of traditional energy sources. And our customers find it a tangible way to express their own commitment to sustainability."Mohawk makes a range of chlorine-free, recycled paper products, and the company has sustainable practices in place. :: Mohawk Paper Mills via GreenBiz.
