Monday, April 11th, 2016

Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU) announced a new solar energy project for its bakery in Escondido, California. The project will see 3,150 solar panels installed on the roof and ground canopy structures to generate 1,775,000 kWh of electricity annually and reducing energy costs by 30%.  

"We are excited to further our commitment to sustainability by introducing solar technology to our facilities," said James McKeown, Director of Sustainability at BBU in a press release. "We are always looking for new opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint and lead by example with our sustainable projects."
