Beverage distribution giant goes fully green

Big Geyser, a distributor of nonalcoholic beverages in Maspeth, has installed a 408-kilowatt solar-power system that is expected to produce enough power to meet all the company’s energy needs.

“As long as the sun rises, this project yields an attractive and predictable return on our investment for at least the next 25 years,” said Big Geyser’s chief financial officer, Rich Richer, in a statement. “As a privately owned company, we can take the longer view and look for investments of this quality. We see a positive public benefit by reducing demand on the energy grid, as well as reducing our utility bills.”
