Biopharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca has completed a 7,300-panel solar energy project at its Wilmington, Del., campus.
The 1.7 MW system is the largest non-utility solar project in Delaware, according to the company. It is expected to produce 2.1 GWh of electricity per year, which is enough to power about 100 homes. It also will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1,200 metric tons per year.
The project is the company's third and largest solar project on the Wilmington campus, with the first two installed in 2004 and 2008.
