Simon & Schuster, a ViacomCBS company and leading publisher, and national commercial solar developer EnterSolar announced the completion of a 2-MW rooftop solar installation at Simon & Schuster’s Riverside Distribution facility in Delran, New Jersey. The solar system will generate 2.2 million kilowatts of clean energy annually, equivalent to matching one-third of the facility’s onsite energy use.
“We are proud to have brought this project to completion and thrilled for the opportunity to generate ecofriendly, renewable energy that will significantly reduce our impact on the environment and contribute to a greater resilience of our warehouse operations from grid outages,” said Ramon Gonzalez, Director, Facilities, Simon & Schuster.
“We are delighted to have worked with Simon & Schuster on this important project,” said Audrey VinantTang, Manager, Global Sourcing, ViacomCBS. “The Riverside facility has for years been a linchpin of Simon & Schuster’s distribution operations, and serves as a natural home for our largest solar installation to date. This project demonstrates that doing the right thing for the environment and for our business is attainable, by generating substantial cost reductions under a power purchase agreement, while also reducing our carbon footprint.”
