Tesco Uses Solar to Power New Distribution Center

The U.K.-based retailer Tesco, which announced in December its move to the U.S., is installing a $13 million solar roof on its five-building, 820,400-square-foot distribution center under construction in Riverside, California.

The device was developed by Solar Integrated Technologies, Inc., of Los Angeles. “The solar roof in Riverside is rated for peak power output of 2 megawatts and it will produce over 2.6 kilowatt hours per annum, providing nearly a fifth of the depot’s power supply,” Tesco USA CEO Tim Mason said. Mason said the company will set “…a global example by measuring and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, helping to stimulate the development of low carbon technology (not least by ring-fencing nearly $200m for investment in sustainable technology) and by empowering consumers by providing then with choice, value and information.”
