Ralphs and Food 4 Less, subsidiaries of The Kroger Co., announced the installation of a PV solar array at its 300,000-square-foot bakery facility in La Habra, California.
The La Habra Bakery rooftop installation features nearly 3,000 solar panels to harness energy from the sun that can produce nearly 1 MWAC of clean power and 2,009 MWh annually.
“Kroger’s newest solar installation is another responsible choice that supports our sustainability goals,” said Erin Sharp, Kroger’s group VP of manufacturing. “We will continue to explore energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy options that are protective to the Southern California environment and communities we serve across America.”
Kroger’s manufacturing team partnered with REC Solar, a non-regulated subsidiary of Duke Energy, on the installation with support from the City of La Habra.
This is the second solar energy project to date for Kroger in the Southern California market, following a 7,000-solar-panel installation in 2019 at the retailer’s 555,000-square-foot automated distribution center in Paramount, California. The installation joins earlier installations completed at the Fred Meyer distribution center in Clackamas, Oregon, and the Smith’s Food and Drug distribution center in Layton, Utah. Kroger has also installed solar power arrays at multiple stores. In 2019, Kroger’s solar and wind installations combined produced more than 12.8 million kWh of renewable power.
The La Habra Bakery employs over 200 associates in a seven-day, 24-hour operation. The bakery produces sliced bread, buns, rolls, donuts and English muffins. Its distribution footprint extends to a combined 303 Ralphs and Food 4 Less grocery stores.
Ralphs and Food 4 Less are a model of innovation in the grocery industry, while fully invested in Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan that aims to end hunger in local communities and eliminate waste across the company by 2025.
