Holbrook, N.Y.-based Hailo LLC has purchased enough wind power from Long Island Power Authority's Green Choice program to fully support the manufacture of its aluminum ladders at the company's new Holbrook facility.

According to a company spokesperson, the manufacturing machinery used about 9,000 kWh per month before the addition of a new machine, and electricity needs are estimated to be approximately 15,000 kWh per month in the future. Hailo's wind power purchase amount will depend on electricity consumed.
