Sustainable Design Features of Prologis Buildings
Prologis Energy Case Studies
Prologis and Amazon Partner on Northern California's Largest Solar Installation
Amazon introduced a new rooftop solar energy system at its fulfillment center in Tracy, California, at a property developed and owned by Prologis. With 11,700 solar roof panels, the 3.8-megawatt rooftop installation is one of the largest in California and represents the latest collaboration between the two companies. Prologis and Amazon worked together to achieve a joint goal of optimizing sustainability in the Tracy facility. The solar panels cover two-thirds of the fulfillment center’s 23-acre roof to generate enough electricity to power 560 homes.
UK Rooftop Solar
As part of a larger effort to incorporate sustainable design features into our warehouses, Prologis UK made its initial investment in rooftop solar on a build-to-suit project for Amazon. Subsequently, in partnership with a wider range of customers, Prologis UK has added over 5 megawatts of solar to its warehouse portfolio. The Prologis UK team chose four sites in Northampton, Dunstable and Brogborough for rooftop solar, designed to offset 10 percent of the facilities’ electrical consumption and produce over 600 kW/m2 of clean energy per year. Two of these rooftop solar projects were completed in 2016.
The Kona Solar Project
Prologis partnered with Bright Plain Renewables and D.E. Shaw Renewable Investments to design and build solar plants at Prologis-owned warehouses in Southern California. The three sustainably designed warehouses—in Ontario, Riverside and Rancho Cucamonga—total over 1.3 million square feet. At nearly 6.2 megawatts, the project produces an estimated 9.8 million kilowatt hours per year. D.E. Shaw is the long-term owner of the installations, leasing roof space from Prologis, which owns the warehouse. D.E. Shaw sells the energy produced to Southern California Edison through its solar photovoltaic program.
