Lineage Logistics recognised for solar energy adoption in US

Novi, Michigan, US: Lineage Logistics ranks fifth for on-site solar adoption and 22nd overall for total solar adoption in the US, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association’s (SEIA) Solar Means Business 2022 report.

“With over 400 strategic locations worldwide, we continue to explore solutions to help mitigate the impact of our operations on the environment and reduce our energy consumption,” says Chris Thurston, director of energy and sustainability at Lineage Logistics.

“The adoption of solar energy has been a central part of this strategy. Given our position within the global food ecosystem, we are pleased to be recognized for our commitment to improve our energy efficiency across and support the decarbonization efforts of the global food supply chain.”

To date, the company’s solar projects offset 40% of a site’s total energy usage, which is equivalent to generating energy for roughly 12,000 homes per year. Lineage Logistics’ site in Colton, California, is set to produce 100% of its energy on-site with a rooftop array of 8,426 solar panels that can generate more than 5.4 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy.

While the SEIA report only focuses on the US, Lineage continues to grow its solar portfolio globally with more than 20 projects spanning North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
