Green Initiatives Are Brewing at Bigelow


R.C. Bigelow Company, also known as the Bigelow Tea Company, is doing its part to make the planet a better place. With CCEF’s help, the company installed a 193.60-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system at its Fairfield, headquarters facility.  Mounted on the rooftops of four different building levels, the solar PV system is supplying approximately 6.7 percent of the total electrical needs of the headquarters complex.


This solar project is just one of Bigelow’s many green initiatives and demonstrates the company’s commitment to be more environmentally friendly.  Bigelow has also implemented energy efficiency and conservation measures and partnered with the town of Fairfield to help spread the word about what each person can do to make environmentally-responsible choices.
Bigelow continually examines different ways that it can preserve, protect and promote a sustainable future in its business operations.


Bigelow’s solar panels help to alleviate the electric load in the heavily congested region of southwest Connecticut.
