FedEx Ground Opens Nation’s Largest Solar Farm in Woodbridge

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Mayor John E. McCormac join FedEx Ground officials to unveil the nation’s largest rooftop solar energy project at the FedEx Ground Distribution Center located in the Keasbey Industrial Park. The 2.42 megawatt solar power system covers approximately 3.3 acres of rooftop space with approximately 12,400 solar panels. The system is capable of producing 2.6 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year - enough for more than 250 households or about 30 percent of the FedEx hub’s annual energy needs. The combined environmental benefits (based on a projected annual reduction of approximately 1,867 metric tons of CO2 emissions) are equivalent to preserving 13 acres of forest or growing nearly 48,000 tree seedlings for ten years.
