Novi, Mich.-based Lineage Logistics’ facility in Colton, Calif., has become the first in the company’s network to generate 100T of its energy consumption on-site. At the same time, the company announced its commitment to become net-zero carbon by 2040 as a signatory of The Climate Pledge.

The Lineage facility has 8,426 individual solar panels that will generate an estimated 5.4 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy annually.

Aligned with President Biden’s Oct. 13 announcement urging investment in a secure and sustainable supply chain, Lineage has installed a 3.3MW solar array and 460kW of linear generators at its Colton Agua Mansa facility. Combined, they will produce 100% of the facility’s energy consumption on a net basis.

Lineage partnered with PowerFlex (powerflex.com), the San Diego-based provider of renewable energy infrastructure to install the rooftop solar array in Colton. The facility has 8,426 individual solar panels that will generate an estimated 5.4 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy annually. The Colton array is one of several on-site solar installations that PowerFlex is supporting across Lineage’s DCs nationally.

The on-site linear generators, a new technology, were launched in March by Mainspring Energy (mainspringenergy.com), Menlo Park, Calif. They create electricity using a low-temperature reaction of fuel and air. Distinct from an engine or fuel cell, a linear generator directly converts motion into electricity using chemical or thermal energy
