Implementation

Staples first 300 kW installation was at their Ontario, California Distribution Center. In the first year alone, the project generated over 2 million kilowatt-hours of affordable power with an availability of 99% that resulted in a reduction of 2.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide. In 2011, Staples added a 600kW installation at a distribution center in Rialto, CA.
