Chicago-based building products firm USG Corp. has entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Green Light Plaster City Solar 1 LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Light Energy Corp., to install a 1 MW solar array at its Plaster City, Calif., manufacturing plant.

Local engineering firm ZGlobal Inc. will install solar panels on eight acres of USG's Plaster City's site. Installation began in September and should be completed by December.

‘We are always looking for opportunities for our plants to use solar energy, and it made a lot of sense to move forward with this renewable energy investment at our manufacturing plant in Plaster City,’ says Al Zucco, senior director for energy and sustainability at USG.
