Kroger subsidiaries install 3,000-panel rooftop solar project
The Kroger Co. announced July 13 that two of their subsidiaries, Ralphs and Food 4 Less, installed a 1 MW solar array at their 300,000-square-foot bakery facility in La Habra, Calif.
The rooftop installation features almost 3,000 solar panels and can produce 2,009 MWh of electricity annually. Kroger received support from REC Solar for the installation.
“Kroger's newest solar installation is another responsible choice that supports our sustainability goals,” Erin Sharp, Kroger's group vice president of manufacturing, said in a statement. “We will continue to explore energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy options that are protective to the Southern California environment and communities we serve across America.”
In 2019, Kroger produced more than 12.8 million kWh of clean energy through various solar and wind installations. The La Habra rooftop solar installation is the company’s second in Southern California, following a 7,000-panel solar project at their 555,000-square-foot automated distribution center in Paramount, Calif.
