Tesco invests in solar

Happy Watts – (www.happywatts.com) Tesco is making other high-profile environmental moves in California. Atop a distribution center in Riverside, Calif., Tesco has installed what it says is one of the largest roof-mounted solar arrays in California. The project illustrates the amount of money it takes to harness energy from the sun: Tesco says the 500,000-square-foot solar-panel system cost $13 million and will provide as much as 25% of the distribution center’s power supply. Mr. Mason said the solar array probably will take 10 to 12 years to pay for itself with energy savings. via WSJ.com>>
