United States Cold Storage (“USCS”) is installing or expanding solar arrays at three of its California facilities, in a move that will dramatically reduce its carbon footprint at those locations by 2022. The new projects involve its warehouses at McClellan (Sacramento), Fresno, and Tulare.

USCS McClellan will install a microgrid generating an estimated 2.4 million KWh per year. This could reduce the facility's Scope 2 carbon footprint by around 34% and eliminate 1.2 million lbs of carbon dioxide per year. USCS Tulare's Phase 3 solar array expansion will generate an additional 3.1 million KWh per year and eliminate 1.5 million lbs of CO2, helping Tulare reduce its total Scope 2 carbon footprint by 46.4%. The three phases combined will generate approximately 77.7% of electricity consumption. Meanwhile, USCS Fresno plans to install solar panels across a 19-acre site to generate an estimated 13.2 million KWh per year. This could reduce 79% of its Scope 2 carbon footprint and eliminate 6.5 million lbs of carbon dioxide per year and a projected 79 million lbs of CO2 over the technology's 25-year lifespan.
