Utz’s N.J. Distribution Center Goes Solar

Utz Quality Foods, Inc. is getting a little help from the sun. That’s because its West Deptford, N.J., distribution center is equipped with a 98.56kWp (DC) solar photovoltaic system that produces enough electricity to offset 100% of the facility’s annual utility usage. Systems such as lighting, air conditioning, vending, dock levelers, power-activated doors, air compressors, phones, paging, telecom and more are all offset by power from this solar module.

The Hanover, Pa.-based snack manufacturer commissioned SunWire Energy, Baltimore, Md., and Nations Roof LLC, Lithia Springs, Ga., to design and install the rooftop solar array.

The N.J. distribution center services the Philadelphia market, as well as the N.J. shore points.
