Staples and SunEdison turn on solar roof system in California

The 32nd SunEdison solar power site for Staples has been activated at Staple’s La Mirada, California fulfillment system. The 1.1MW solar roof system is owned, operated and constructed by SunEdison. The system has the potential to produce around 2 million kWh of energy annually.

"The solar installation in La Mirada marks Staples ongoing commitment to environmental leadership," said Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs for Staples. "Through our relationship with solar services provider SunEdison, we are able to purchase energy from our rooftop at a rate below or equal to the cost of electricity from the grid. This reduces our operating costs while freeing up more electricity during peak times for use by local homes and businesses."

Staple’s solar power program began in 2005 and has facilities in California, New Jersey, Connecticut and Maryland.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
