Staples unveils solar power installation at Framingham HQ

Office supply giant Staples Inc. has just unveiled a solar power installation at its Framingham headquarters.

Company officials said they worked with SunEdison on a project that resulted in a 685 kilowatt solar installation on the 650,000 square-foot office building that serves as Staples’ headquarters.

According to Staples, this is its 37th solar array.

“The installation brings the company’s use of solar power to a total of nearly 14 megawatts across its operations nationally, which is equivalent to powering nearly 1,800 average US homes for one year,” Staples said in a press release.

In a statement, Mark Buckley, the company’s vice president of environmental affairs, said: “This solar power system at our global headquarters is a demonstration of Staples’ dedication to sustainability across our business. Our partnership for solar energy with SunEdison provides cost-effective power and helps Staples meet its environmental goals.”
