General Motors (GM), which has deployed several solar arrays at its facilities across the U.S., has become a member of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
‘Part of our renewable energy goal as a company involves helping other organizations learn how to successfully implement renewable energy strategies,’ explains Rob Threlkeld, renewable energy manager for GM. ‘Joining SEIA enables us to reach a pool of like-minded companies committed to making solar energy a significant energy source.’
Last year, SEIA ranked GM as the No. 1 automotive solar user in the U.S. Its U.S. solar installations include a 1.8 MW rooftop solar array at its Toledo, Ohio, plant; a 1.237 MW array on the rooftop of its White Marsh, Md., plant; a 1 MW array on the rooftop of its Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., distribution center; and several other projects.
