In August 2005, FedEx Express activated California’s then-largest corporate solar power installation at its Oakland, California West Coast Hub. The system reduces demand on the utility grid and serves as an additional source of power capacity to benefit businesses and residents of California. This 904 kilowatt photovoltaic system has produced over 10.5 GWh from its installation through May 2015. Together with the Facility’s 500kW solid oxide fuel cell system, alternative energy systems supply 47% of the electricity for the Facility.
Currently, FedEx Corporation has 15 solar energy producing systems onsite at domestic locations in California, New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Texas, and international locations in Germany, France, Belgium and Japan. Together, these facilities produced greater than 11 million kWh of electricity in FY15. "These solar installations advance our commitment to connect the world in responsible and resourceful ways," said Mitch Jackson, Vice President Environmental Affairs and Sustainability, FedEx Corp.
In 2014, FedEx was once again recognized by the Solar Energy Industry Association as one of the top 25 solar-generating companies in the U.S., ranking 22nd by number of solar installations and 18th by generating capacity. We are the only transportation-logistics company to receive this recognition.
