Change a light bulb. Make a difference.

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?

Walking On The Sun

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.
