GM Installs 2.2 MW Solar Array at Factory
General Motors’ new 2.2 MW ground-mounted solar array will be complete by the end of 2014 at its Lordstown, Ohio, complex. When the last of more than 8,500 solar panels are in place, it will be GM’s largest solar installation in the Western Hemisphere.
The renewable energy produced by the array is enough to power nearly 1.5 percent of the plant.
This announcement comes about one year after completion of the 1.8 MW solar array on the rooftop of GM’s Toledo, Ohio, transmission facility. That array is the largest rooftop array in the state, to date.
