Walgreens Dedicates 100th Roof-Mounted Solar Power Installation

Drugstore chain Walgreens says it has marked its continued commitment to sustainability with the commissioning of its 100th rooftop solar power system installation in Mason, Ohio.

Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, will join officials from installer SoCore Energy and Walgreens for a community celebration today at the Walgreens installation, located at 8060 S. Mason Montgomery Rd. The event will feature a dedication ceremony, samples of eco-friendly products and a ‘green bag’ giveaway.

Since its first solar installation in 2007, Walgreens says it has expanded its plans to include stores and distribution centers in Connecticut, New Jersey, California, Oregon and Ohio, for a total of more than 130 installations nationwide by year-end.
