Constellation Energy and McCormick & Co. Inc. have completed the installation of a 1.8 MW solar array at McCormick's 363,000 square-foot distribution center in Belcamp, Md.
The second solar project developed for McCormick by Constellation Energy, McCormick's Belcamp installation brings the company's total amount of hosted solar power statewide to nearly 3 MW, according to the companies. In late 2008, the companies brought a nearly 1 MW solar installation online at McCormick's Spice Mill in Hunt Valley, Md.
Constellation Energy developed, owns and maintains the solar power systems at McCormick's Belcamp and Hunt Valley locations. In return, McCormick purchases all of the electricity generated by the solar panels at less than market rates under separate 20-year power purchase agreements. Constellation maintains ownership of the renewable energy certificates.
