6.7-MW solar project at Medline Industries will likely be largest rooftop array in Massachusetts

EnterSolar will develop a 6.7-MW rooftop solar project for Medline Industries, the largest privately-held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies in North America. The installation at Medline’s distribution facility in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, is expected to be the largest commercial rooftop solar project in the state once complete.

The solar array in Uxbridge is the latest example of Medline’s dedication to investing in healthcare and our communities while lessening its environmental footprint. Medline’s investment totals $33.3 million across nine rooftop solar installations at its facilities, with solar projects planned through 2022.

“The Uxbridge rooftop solar array is another example of Medline investing in state-of-the-art technology and clean energy,” said Medline President of Global Operations, Bill Abington. “It is important for Medline to remain at the forefront of clean energy and energy efficiency in operating our vast network of distribution and manufacturing facilities.”

Medline’s environmental commitment in addition to solar energy also includes 94% of its distribution center space operating as LEED-certified, investments in energy efficient vehicles, and its ReNewal division, which reprocesses medical devices that last year saved more than 1 million pounds of medical waste from ending up in landfills.

“We are excited to continue working with Medline to achieve their sustainability goals. We’ve partnered with them to complete a number of solar projects across the country, and this noteworthy rooftop solar project at Uxbridge demonstrates their ongoing commitment to a renewable energy future. This system will benefit not only Medline, but also the local area by producing solar energy to foster a greener grid,” said Lily Whitehouse, Account Manager at EnterSolar.
