Harbec Plastics, Inc. was formed in 1977 by toolmaker Bob Bechtold and has grown to become a full-service supplier of plastic injection molded parts to many Fortune 500 customers. The company purchases wind renewable energy certificates and also operates an on site wind turbine. In addition to using renewable energy, Harbec established an employee benefit that offers its employees a 50% subsidy for buying utility-supplied green power at their residences. About 30% of all employees are participating. Harbec is currently planning to add a second 850 kW wind turbine in the spring of 2013.
