I recently sat down with Don Colvin, U.S. VP of facilities at FedEx Express, to hear what it takes to sustainably manage 52 million square feet of space. Q. The Solar Energy Industries Association just announced their top 25 corporate solar users and FedEx is on the list again. Can you tell me how solar fits into your overall sustainability strategy?

We recently published our fifth annual FedEx Global Citizenship Report. If you have looked at it, you know that it is an information-packed report of FedEx actions relating to corporate social responsibility. If you haven't seen it, I encourage you to do so.

I am very inspired by today’s events, as we broke ground for our new office and warehouse facilities at the Riverview Solar Technology Park just outside of Buffalo, in Tonawanda, NY.

In 2005, FedEx went solar by installing a 904-kilowatt photovoltaic system on the Oakland Hub in California. It took 300,000 solar cells developed by Sharp installed into 5,769 photovoltaic modules to cover the 81,000 square foot area roof. At peak output, the solar-electric system installed by Berkeley-based PowerLight Corporation, can produce the equivalent power used by more than 900 homes during the daytime. In addition to generating electricity, the solar panels will help insulate the buildings, further reducing heating and cooling costs.
