Infiniti Energy has completed construction on a 992-kW roof mounted solar array project at a PepsiCo Bottling warehouse in Piscataway, NJ. The PepsiCo project includes 2,482 Trina 400 Watt Modules, PanelClaw FR10D Racking, 12 Chint 60kW Inverters, 2,482 TIGO Rapid Shutdown Units, and 992.80 kW DC / 720.0 kW AC.
“We are thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to work with PepsiCo and play a role in helping them achieve their sustainability goals,” said Michael Kushner, President of Infiniti Energy. “Working with an industry leader who has boldly placed investment in renewables as one of their top priorities is exciting for our entire team. PepsiCo’s Piscataway facility is a wonderful example of how both the business sector and the community can benefit from continued investment in renewables. We are proud to play a role in the expansion of solar energy, particularly in our home state.”
The project is part of a corporate initiative by PepsiCo to achieve 100% renewable electricity for its US-based operations.
“PepsiCo’s sustainability strategy targets every stage of our complex value chain to use resources more efficiently, reduce GHG emissions, replenish water, improve our products, and recapture packaging materials,” said Richard Tompkins, President, North Division – PBNA. “Energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions are key to our strategy for reducing emissions. Transitioning PepsiCo’s global business operations to 100% renewable electricity is the right step forward to achieve a meaningful impact as we continue to advance our sustainability agenda.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
