On Thursday, March 19, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. hosted a dedication ceremony to celebrate the installation of a new solar panel system at the Porsche Logistics Center in Ontario, CA. The solar power system was designed and installed by HelioPower at 5100 E. Ontario Mills Parkway, using 372 solar modules from Sharp and will produce 135,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable electricity per year.

 

Following is a recap of what our esteemed speakers had to say about this landmark achievement.

 

  

 

Tim Quinn, Vice President of Aftersales, PCNA“At Porsche we a have an employee program called Green Choice. It basically says let’s think before we act and make environmentally responsible choices. That’s exactly what we’ve done here with the installation of our new solar panel system.”
