Nevada-based ProCaps Laboratories (formerly Your Vitamins) is producing its products on solar power. The company owned by Andrew Lessman makes a variety of vitamins and supplements.
The solar installation is located on the roof of the ProCaps facility in Henderson, Nevada. According to ProCaps the installation is the "largest private solar energy installation in the world."
The system is made up of 75 watt AstroPower solar modules applied to the PowerLight PowerGuard roofing system and covers an area of 23,000 square feet.
Lessman has grown his vitamin company tremendously thanks in part to an agreement with the Home Shopping Network (HSN) owned by IAC Corp. IAC Chairman Barry Diller lured Lessman away from rival QVC and made him an "offer I couldn't refuse," Lessman said.
ProCaps doesn't market themselves as a green company per se, their focus is more on their products. Lessman's style is to let the products shine and back them up with customer service. We'll see if the company focuses more on its solar power as a marketing tool in the future.
