Fidelity goes solar in a big way
The idea was a large-scale solar energy installation. As part of its long-term energy strategy, Fidelity has made a significant investment in developing four solar installations in North Carolina. Located on four separate parcels of land, the installations total about 145 acres and have a power capacity of 20 megawatts, or enough to power about 3,200 average American homes. The power generated offsets more than 90% of the energy currently consumed by Fidelity's Data Center in North Carolina. By harnessing the power of the sun, Fidelity's environmental sustainability program is flourishing.
Our commitment to sustainability
Beyond a company initiative, it's a priority for clients and associates. During last year's Earth Day internal campaign, Fidelity employees were loud and clear: "Renewable energy" was one of the most popular topics.
And, Fidelity is not just looking up, it’s looking around. "Fidelity has been evaluating renewable energy opportunities for a number of years, including wind, solar, and geothermal power, as part of our larger business and environmental efforts," Alicia Sundberg, Head of Fidelity Real Estate Company, leading the charge for environmental sustainability at Fidelity's offices.
