Xantrex sponsors environmental initiatives

Xantrex Technology USA Inc., a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, recently supported projects that promote sustainable green living and the environment.

Students at Dartmouth College's Thayer School of Engineering developed a comprehensive energy metrics system for the Big Green Bus, a summer touring vehicle students use to educate people about sustainable living practices. The bus is powered by solar panels and waste vegetable oil, and it features Xantrex products, including an inverter/charger system and battery monitor.

Another Xantrex-sponsored initiative supports 2B Enterprises' "America the Sustainable" project, which focuses on environmental stewardship and the preservation of natural resources. The Xantrex Freedom SW 3000 Power System is being used on the organization's Green RV, a traveling platform to educate the public about the benefits of green lifestyle.

"We are very pleased to partner with worthwhile organizations, such as 2B Enterprises and members of the Big Green Bus project, who are committed to showing communities how to conserve energy," Xantrex general manager Richard Gaudet said in a statement. "We believe in giving back and supporting projects that help to make a difference and we're proud to play our own small part in helping to create a better, cleaner planet."
