Pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is building North America's largest rooftop solar array atop their York, PA distribution center.
The array will be 360,000 square feet (equivalent to seven football fields) with 11,000 solar panels and have a capacity of 3.4 MW, enough to fully power the facility. When the project is completed this December, it will be the first of the company's facilities to run completely on renewable energy, but according to GSK, it won't be the last. A Fresno, CA distribution center is next in line for a renewable energy makeover starting sometime next Spring.
These efforts are part of GSK's recent commitment to reduce its energy consumption by 45 percent of 2006 levels by 2015.
