Waxdale, which is the size of 36 football fields, is home to additional clean energy initiatives. In the mid-2000s, two cogeneration systems were put in place that use waste methane gas from a nearby public landfill and clean burning natural gas to generate 85 percent of the facility's electrical energy. The new wind turbines will provide the remaining 15 percent."This project shows that when wind energy and global manufacturing come together, it can have a phenomenal impact on improving our environment," said Cathy Stepp, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. "Today is about celebrating the great leadership shown by SC Johnson, as well as encouraging other large companies to make similar efforts at finding greener ways to do business."
