Supervalu adds solar power to three Albertsons stores
FULLERTON, Calif. Supervalu announced that it has installed rooftop solar power systems at three Albertsons grocery stores in Carlsbad, Oceanside and Alpine, California. The Solar installations were constructed by channel partner REC Solar.
SunEdison financed the solar power plants and will monitor and maintain the systems that will produce more than 12 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy over the next 20 years.
"We are delighted to align with SunEdison for the activation of these solar sites that required no upfront capital costs for Albertsons," said Rick Crandall, director of environmental stewardship for Albertsons Southern California division "The sites will allow us to continue making progress on our cost-saving measures and to support the use of clean energy as an alternative to the grid."
