Dépèche transmise le 12 octobre 2011 par Business Wire

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Dependable Companies, a leading provider of trucking, warehousing, freight forwarding and airfreight solutions, today announced it is implementing a 1.2 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) system atop its headquarters in Los Angeles. Upon completion, the installation will be the largest solar electricity system on an industrial high-rise in the world.

“With Premier Power, we will work to provide Dependable with a system that reflects the company’s reputation for quality and dependability.”

Formed in 1950 in Los Angeles with one bobtail truck, the family-owned Dependable Companies has grown into six major logistics divisions providing full-service logistics from trucking to warehousing to international freight movement. As a pioneer in the one-stop logistics business model, The Dependable Companies continues its quest today by focusing on sustainability through green initiatives and energy efficiency measures. In addition to the new solar energy system, the Dependable headquarters is home to efficient lighting technologies, a low-emissions trucking fleet and more than 120 electric forklifts. For its efforts, the company was recently selected by the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) to participate in an energy efficiency analysis.

“As proud residents of Los Angeles for more than 60 years, we strive to make a positive impact in the community. Our new solar system enables us to offset approximately 30,000 tons of carbon emissions, the equivalent of removing more than 55 million mid-sized automobiles from the road,” said Ron Massman, CEO of The Dependable Companies. “We thank Premier Power and JinkoSolar for their help in continuing our environmental stewardship as we demonstrate the benefits of clean power from one of the city’s landmark facilities. We eagerly await the beginning of our renewable energy future.”

The company selected Premier Power to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for its project.

“The Dependable organization is composed of visionaries who consistently raise the bar for enhancing sustainability in their industry,” said Dean R. Marks, CEO of Premier Power. “We commend the company for its exceptional track record of environmentally friendly practices and will assist Dependable in going above and beyond in this commitment through the adoption of solar energy.”

The installation will incorporate solar modules from JinkoSolar.

“Given our strong commitment to the U.S. market, we jumped at the opportunity to supply our modules for this high-caliber project that will showcase the power of solar to thousands of passersby on a daily basis,” said Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer for JinkoSolar. “With Premier Power, we will work to provide Dependable with a system that reflects the company’s reputation for quality and dependability.”

Construction on the rooftop system is currently underway. Executives from Dependable, Premier Power and JinkoSolar will unveil the project at a formal commissioning ceremony in November.
