Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline announced plans to build what would be the largest solar rooftop array in North America at its distribution center in York, Pa. The project's 11,000 panels will cover an area of 360,000 square feet (roughly equivalent to seven football fields) and generate enough power -- about 3.4 million kilowatt hours per year -- to run the entire DC. If the first one is successful, GSK plans to do the same thing next spring at its Fresno, Calif., facility.
