This announcement is part of Lineage’s broader energy reduction strategy through which the Company commits to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2040

Lineage Logistics, LLC, the leading innovative temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions provider, announced the installation of groundbreaking clean energy advancements at its facility in Colton,CA to establish the first facility in the Lineage network to generate 100% of its energy consumption on-site.

This announcement comes in tandem with Lineage’s commitment to becoming net-zero carbon by 2040 as a signatory of The Climate Pledge, representing the Company’s industry-leading charge for a more sustainable cold chain.

Lineage partnered with PowerFlex, a national provider of renewable energy infrastructure, to install the rooftop solar array in Colton – the second largest solar array in the Company’s leading global network of temperature-controlled warehouses. 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 onsite solar installations that PowerFlex is supporting across Lineage’s distribution centers in the United States.

Aligned with President Biden’s announcement on October 13, 2021 to invest in a secure and sustainable supply chain in the United States, Lineage has installed a 3.3MW solar array and 460kW of linear generators at its Colton Agua Mansa facility in California’s Inland Empire that, combined, will produce 100% of the facility’s energy consumption on a net basis. These advancements are indicative of Lineage’s continued prioritization of energy reduction, which started with the introduction of the Company’s responsible energy reduction roadmap in 2015.
