2019 SEIA Solar Rankings: Prologis Again in Top 10
In the latest report from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released today, Prologis again ranked #8 in overall commercial solar capacity and is first among real estate companies.
“Solar Means Business 2019” tracks onsite and offsite commercial solar installations among U.S. companies. It summarizes large offsite installations as well as data on solar installed onsite at business locations.
Specific to onsite solar capacity, Prologis held its #3 ranking, after Target and Walmart.
“As the world's largest owner and operator of logistics real estate, Prologis is committed to minimizing our environmental impacts, and every solar panel installed helps us get closer in the transition to clean energy,” said Jared Friedman, Prologis’ vice president of Global Energy. “Rooftop solar is a vital component of Prologis’ growing portfolio of customer-focused renewable energy solutions, and we are proud to be honored by SEIA as we work toward our goal of doubling our onsite generating capacity to 400 megawatts by 2025.”
“The world’s most recognizable brands are walking the walk when it comes to their clean energy commitments,” said SEIA president and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper. “Businesses are choosing solar energy because it can significantly curb their energy costs and add predictability during these uncertain times. We expect that the corporate sector will make greater investments in solar as businesses make and follow through on clean energy commitments to address the climate crisis.”
The 2019 report tracks 8,358 megawatts of commercial solar capacity across more than 38,000 systems. Combined, the systems generate enough electricity each year to power 1.6 million homes and offset 8.9 million metric tons of CO2 annually.
