Boston Sand & Gravel Company is proud to be a part of major public initiatives for renewable energy, Commonwealth Solar, and Solar Boston programs. A cornerstone of the company's sustainability program is its 109 kW PV solar energy system that has been producing renewable energy at the company's main facility in Boston since December 2008. The system provides 97% of Boston Sand & Gravel's energy usage at its primary maintenance facility and 10% of the overall energy of the entire concrete production facility. This system allows Boston Sand & Gravel Company to support its customers with materials for green construction, while reducing its consumption of traditional energy sources in the production of those materials.
