GM nearing completion of Ohio rooftop solar power project

General Motors has announced a 1.8 MW rooftop solar array at its Toledo Transmission plant in Ohio will be completed next month. The project will be the largest rooftop array in the state and generate nearly 3 percent of the plant’s overall electricity consumption.

The solar power project uses 21,000 panels on the facility’s roof and serves and serves as proof to the company’s employees and the people who live in the Toledo area that clean energy plays a significant role in building GM vehicles, according to GM Manager of Renewable Energy Rob Threlkeld.

The company, which was also recently Wednesday as a “Solar Champion” by the Solar Energy Industry Association, will have more than 40 MW of solar power at its facility globally.
