The North Face Builds 1 MW Solar Facility
The North Face, one of my favorite outdoor clothing companies, has just completed construction of a 1-megawatt (MW) solar system at its distribution center in Visalia, California. The solar system will provide 25-30 percent of the energy needed by the facility. According to Arno Harris, CEO of Recurrent Energy, the company that designed, engineered, and installed the solar system:
There is a massive need for clean generation located close to where power is actually used, and customers like The North Face are playing a key role in making that vision a reality.
The rest of the energy needed by the North Face will be offset by purchasing Green-e Climate-certified carbon offsets from wind energy projects.
