Whole Foods Market in conjunction with NRG Energy, Inc. plans to install rooftop solar at up to 84 Whole Foods stores and distribution centers across 9 states to generate renewable energy onsite. When completed and determined by final negotiations and analysis, the portfolio of solar projects has the potential to generate up to 13.8MW of solar power.
"Installing solar at Whole Foods Market locations across the country will increase the percentage of renewable energy that is generated in communities where we work," said Kathy Loftus, Global Leader in Sustainability for Whole Foods Market. "We're thrilled to work with NRG to bring about this multiple stakeholder view of our clean energy goals while simultaneously maximizing the utilization of resources."
"Whole Foods Market is an ideal match for NRG. Their vision and mission aligns with NRG's approach to driving smarter, cleaner energy solutions while continuing to serve customers, neighbors and the community," said Rob Gaudette, SVP, Business Solutions, NRG. "We're committed to providing our customers, like Whole Foods Market, with energy solutions that support both sustainability and economic growth."
