CleanBoard Inc. has announced it has changed its name to GlassPoint Solar Inc. and revealed new products that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial sources. GlassPoint sells solar equipment that generates industrial process heat at a lower cost than heat produced by burning natural gas.
Previously the company planned to use its solar technology to manufacture gypsum wallboard in its own factories. Now, the company is working with major wallboard manufacturers to retrofit their factories to use solar industrial process heat.
“By converting existing drywall factories to solar power instead of building new ones, we will make a larger impact on climate change sooner that we otherwise would,” said Rod MacGregor, CEO and co-founder of GlassPoint solar. “In the time it takes to build one million square feet of new drywall production capacity we can convert one billion square feet of existing capacity to clean energy.”
