FreezPak Logistics, a leading third party food logistics company, has announced solar projects at three of its locations, allowing it to move toward clean electricity and renewable energy.
Combined, FreezPak locations in Carteret and Elizabeth, New Jersey are expected to generate 2,832,900 kWh (kilowatt hours) in their first year of clean electricity generation. The anticipated environmental impact will be significant in both locations.
“Our company is very focused on controlling cost, not only for the bottom line, but to also continue our support to be closer and closer off the grid. The use of hydrogen fuel cells, solar panels, upgraded dock equipment, and most recently the use of ammonia refrigeration systems,” said Mike Saoud co-CEO. “These are all components in becoming a more sustainable organization. The use of our hydrogen plants will also pay off in the very near future with hydrogen tractors coming into the market.”
FreezPak Woodbridge, projected to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, is FreezPak’s third location slated for the solar project and is being built to LEED certification standards.
A family-owned business with headquarters in Carteret New Jersey, FreezPak has been a part of the cold storage industry for over two decades. FreezPak celebrated their 20th anniversary in August 2021, and is continually ahead of the curve with exploring ways it can be more environmentally sustainable.
