United Natural Foods invests in Pine Gate’s Trent River Solar project

United Natural Foods announced that in collaboration with solar project developer, Pine Gate Renewables as well as U.S. Bank, it is investing in Trent River Solar, a 108.5-MW solar facility located in Jones County, North Carolina.

The site, which sits on 640 acres, will contain over 800,000 solar panels and create enough energy to provide power to over 14,000 homes. The solar project will support 300 local and regional jobs and is expected to be completed and placed in service later this month. UNFI will not acquire the energy created at Trent River nor the renewable energy certificates.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to sponsor Trent River Solar and are pleased to work with Pine Gate Renewables and U.S. Bank to bring this project to life to create local clean energy and jobs,” said Steven L. Spinner, chairman and CEO. “UNFI has work ahead of us to reduce our emissions and we look forward to applying knowledge learned from this project to our pursuits of climate action.”
