Iron Mountain to Add 18 Solar Arrays across Five States
NEC member Iron Mountain is planning to add 18 solar panel arrays across five of its locations.
The arrays, owned and operated by Standard Solar, will span across California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Maryland at Iron Mountain facilities in the states. The move is part of a larger goal of the company to utilize local, reliable, cost-effective, and sustainable energy sources to meet an RE100 goal of 100% renewable electricity for operations. In order to meet these goals, the project required the use of innovative solar solutions across all five states, including community solar structures and virtual net-metering options. The first location’s array—a rooftop array at an Iron Mountain facility in Connecticut—is expected to be fully online at the end of February.
“Through our partnership with Standard Solar, we have been able to build a holistic program that allows Iron Mountain to seamlessly install on-site solar in multiple states,” said Lauren Fitch, CBRE Energy Manager for Iron Mountain. “This program is helping Iron Mountain progress towards meeting their environmental goals of RE100 and the Science Based Target Initiative in a cost effective and simple to implement method.”
The Council congratulates Iron Mountain for its move to a more renewable and sustainable future. Read more in Solar Industry.
