FedEx Unveils Largest Rooftop Solar Array In U.S.
FedEx has unveiled the largest rooftop solar installation in the country, a 2.42 megawatt solar installation across 3.3 acres of rooftop space at the FedEx Ground Woodbridge distribution hub in New Jersey. The installation will satisfy about 30% of the facilities energy needs.
The unveiling follows on the heels of an announcement earlier this week that Cowley Companies is building a 2.4 megawatt solar array on a warehouse in Arizona.
Among FedEx’s other solar systems, in 2008 the freight division installed two solar power projects. One in Whittier, Calif., is a 282-kilowatt system , while another in Fontana, Calif., is a 269-kilowatt system.
In 2005, FedEx Express started a 904-kilowatt system at its Oakland, Calif., hub. The system meets up to 80 percent of that facility’s peak energy demand.
