UPS invests $18 million in solar

|15 February 2017|


UPS announced this month it is investing $18 million in on-site solar energy at some of its US facilities.

This will provide nearly five times the amount of power currently generated from solar at UPS facilities.  Staring with a minimum of eight of its American hubs UPS will deliver the new installations by the end of 2017. It will increase the company solar generating capacity to 10 megawatts.

“Solar technology is a proven way to effectively and efficiently provide long-term power to our facilities,” said Bill Moir, director of Facilities Procurement, UPS. “We have a significant number of facilities that are well positioned to deploy solar at scale and increase our sustainable energy options for our buildings and electric vehicles.”

UPS will purchase over 26,000 solar panels during the expansion. Once installed, each building will effectively produce 50% of its daily energy use via the sun.
