Greater Toronto Area grocer Rabba Fine Foods has signed an agreement with Green Integrations to install solar panels on its distribution centres.

The project has secured utility approvals and construction began in June. Rabba’s two distribution centers, located in Mississauga, will soon generate most of their own power with solar panels. 

Toronto-based Green Integrations will design, engineer and build the systems, with an expected operation date of November 2023.

Together, the projects will consist of 2630 solar panels with a capacity of over 1.4MW of power, which translates to 1.54 million kWh of solar electricity each year. 

The energy generated by both systems will reduce Rabba's grid energy use by an average of 74%, the grocer said. 

Through the investment, the company will offset more than 800 tonnes of CO2e emissions over 20 years. 

"The environment is important to our customers, and our business," said founder Jack Rabba in a statement. "Harnessing the power of solar energy is one of the ways we can contribute to a more sustainable and, ultimately, a healthy business. We are eager to see this investment come to fruition."
