2018 Sustainability Excellence in Manufacturing Award, Second Place Tie in the Project Category: Campbell Soup
Campbell’s partnered with BNB Renewable and SunPower to install a 4.4MW solar system at the company’s headquarters. The project features SunPower’s rooftop, car port and ground-mount solar solutions as well as electric car charging stations. The system will supply the equivalent of 20 percent of the headquarters’ annual energy demand. Campbell signed a 20-year purchase agreement with BNB, which allows it to purchase all the electricity generated by the project at a rate lower than its current local utility electrical rate. The project was structured as a purchase power agreement, so there was no capital investment for Campbell.
