Domino Sugar takes iconic Baltimore sign solar

Domino Sugar is taking its iconic sign along Baltimore’s harbor solar.

Domino and its parent company ASR Group marked Earth Day on Tuesday by announcing that a new solar array installed at the refinery is expected to generate more energy than the sign uses. The 8,400-square-foot, red neon sign atop the refinery has lit up Baltimore’s night sky since 1951.

The array is part of a sustainability effort that also includes adding an electric car charging station for employees and switching out petroleum-based polyethylene hard hats for sugar cane-based ones. The old hats will be recycled or donated.

Domino employs more than 1,200 Maryland-based workers.
