is looking pretty mainstream these days:
Focusing on reducing their carbon footprint, Emmi Roth, a Fitchburg, Wis., specialty cheese operation, will add 1,600 solar panels to its Platteville, Wis., plant. 
Installed on the roof of the facility, the panels will supply 15% of the electricity and will reduce the company’s carbon footprint by eliminating 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from the environment.
