Toyota Alabama installing 3.3-acre solar array in environmental push

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – The Toyota engine plant in Huntsville is playing a key role in the automaker’s new solar energy plan, as part of a $9.3 million investment designed to cut the need for outside energy in its operations across three states.

The company is adding nearly 11 acres of new solar arrays in Alabama, Missouri and West Virginia, a setup that will offset 6,480,000 kWh energy, or the equivalent of powering nearly 800 homes per year.

In Huntsville, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama’s 3.3-acre solar array will be the largest built to date in Madison County.

The $2.7 million project, expected to be complete by the end of the year, will generate 1.6 megawatts of solar-generated energy and reduce CO2 emissions at the plant by 1,732 metric tons annually.
