FedEx Ground, the small-package shipping unit of FedEx Corp., plans to install what the company says is the nation's largest rooftop solar electric system at its distribution hub in Woodbridge, N.J.

The solar power project is the third between a FedEx operating company and BP Solar and the fifth solar power project for FedEx. The 2.42 MW solar power system will cover approximately 3.3 acres of rooftop space with approximately 12,400 solar panels.

When completed, the system will be capable of producing approximately 2.6 million kWh of electricity a year and could provide up to 30% of the hub's annual energy needs. As part of the agreement, BP Solar will install and operate the solar power system, and FedEx will purchase the power generated.
