Estes Express Lines Expands Solar-Power Footprint with Installation of New Panel Grid at Greensboro Terminal

GREENSBORO, NC (February 2, 2016)—Estes Express Lines is excited to announce the completed installation of a new photovoltaic solar power system at the company’s Greensboro, NC, terminal location.

Consisting of 2,760 solar panels located on the roof of the terminal, the power system will generate 1,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, a figure equal to the removal of 145 passenger vehicles from the roads or 720 tons of carbon dioxide, annually.

“The Greensboro solar project is the company’s largest photovoltaic installation to date,” says Joe Ziadeh, Estes’ Construction and Facility Maintenance Project Manager. “The system was designed to produce enough electricity to power all the buildings on site. With the combination of state and federal tax incentives and Duke Powers’ Solar Renewable Energy program, it was a great opportunity for Estes to go green in Greensboro.”
