Campbell Soup Company announced that a 1-megawatt (MW) solar array at its Pepperidge Farm bakery in Bloomfield has officially come online. Commercial operation for the solar array, which is generating the equivalent of 15% of the bakery's annual energy demand, began on Dec. 26, 2014. The ground-mounted, fixed-tilt array comprises 2,720 high-efficiency SunPower solar panels and sits on five acres of land leased from Pepperidge Farm. In its first year, the array is projected to produce more than 1.7MM kilowatt-hours of electricity. The solar array in Bloomfield is the second large to be installed at facilities owned by Campbell, Pepperidge Farm's parent company, and it is one of the very few solar arrays operating at manufacturing sites in the industry. The Bloomfield array marks the latest step in the company's sustainability initiatives to support the use of renewable energy. By 2020, Campbell aims to reduce energy use by 35% per ton of product produced and source at least 40% of the energy used by the company from renewable or alternative energy sources.
