Southern California Edison (SCE), Rosemead, Calif., and ProLogis, one of the largest owners of warehousing space in the world, plan to place up to 40 percent of SCE's massive 250MW solar panel project on ProLogis distribution warehouse roofs in the Inland Empire region of Southern California. The agreement will make available to the utility as much as 15 million-square-feet of roof space for the installation of more than a half-million advanced solar panels. Panel installation will begin this year on the first ProLogis roofs included in the agreement – four structures in the Ontario Airport complex and a fifth in the Redlands Distribution Center.
“Our first installation in this large solar power project was a ProLogis building in Fontana, Calif. that now provides 2 million watts of clean energy to our grid,” said SCE President John Fielder. “We are pleased to expand this relationship with a company that shares our vision for converting otherwise unused urban rooftop real estate into solar power stations.”
ProLogis owns and leaeses 475 million square feet of industrial space in markets across North America, Europe and Asia. Its customers include manufacturers, retailers, transportation companies, third-party logistics providers and other enterprises with large-scale distribution needs Details
