Shaw’s, Equity One complete solar installation
West Bridgewater, Mass. Shaw’s Supermarkets said Thursday that, in conjunction with building owner Equity One, it has completed the installation of solar panels on the roof of a store in Webster, Mass.
Shaw’s, a division of Minneapolis-based Supervalu, is slated to complete another three solar energy projects with Equity One.
The Webster store installation includes approximately 750 solar panels that generate about 226,000 kilowatt-hours of solar energy each year. The project is estimated to reduce 123 tons of carbon emissions per year, equivalent to removing 50 cars and light trucks from the road or planting 70 acres of forest each year.
“Shaw’s is committed to environmental stewardship and we are pleased to have worked with Equity One on the installation and activation of these solar panels at our store,” Larry Wahlstrom, president of Shaw’s, said in a statement.
