Home Depot Adds Solar in California
The Home Depot will install 13 megawatts (MW) of rooftop solar across 25 store locations in California.
The installations contribute to the company’s goal to produce or procure 100% renewable energy by 2030 equivalent to the electricity needs for all its facilities.
The portfolio will begin construction in early 2023 and is expected to generate more than 17 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy annually that directly power The Home Depot’s store locations within the portfolio.
The solar will be installed by DSD Renewables (DSD).
“Reducing The Home Depot’s environmental impact is essential to our efforts to build a better business, workplace and world,” said Ron Jarvis, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer for The Home Depot in a statement. “Harnessing power from the sun is essential to our renewable electricity aims, and we’re happy to work with DSD as we expand our solar program and continue to invest in alternative energy solutions.”
DSD is continuing to work on projects with The Home Depot to broaden its solar energy usage in New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland and Massachusetts with additional projects planned in Arizona, California, Illinois and New York.
