QVC opens second solar farm

Rocky Mount, N.C. - QVC has opened a second solar farm comprising 11,564 panels on 11 acres at the Rocky Mount Distribution Center owned by QVC Rocky Mount, Inc. Now generating 5.8 million kilowatt-hours per year, this latest addition brings the combined total number of panels at the site to 17,244 over 18 acres. The first field of 5,680 solar panels on seven acres of land was completed in November 2008.

"QVC will conserve enough kilowatt-hours of energy to reduce CO2 emissions that are equivalent to 458,766 gallons of gasoline," said Bill Stanulis, QVC Rocky Mount Distribution Center General Manager. "As one of the largest employers in Edgecombe County, we are committed to conserving energy by implementing sustainable solutions and reducing waste."
