PowerFlex announced the completion of the second rooftop solar project for athletic wear brand ASICS at its Byhalia Distribution Center in Mississippi. The completion of the 1-MW solar rooftop brings the total solar generated power at the distribution center to 2 MW that will power the building load and directly offset utility costs.
The system is the largest solar PV rooftop in Byhalia and included the engagement of local labor. Additionally, ASICS now participates in net metering, which contributes power to the grid and helps build grid resiliency.
“As ASICS continues towards a goal of reducing our overall CO2 emissions by 63% by 2030, today’s announcement is a strong step forward,” said Kyle Koestler, director of operations, ASICS North America. “The PowerFlex team were great partners in helping seamlessly complete the second rooftop solar project without disrupting our day-to-day business at the distribution center.”
