With 369,000 square feet under roof, it would seem McCormick & Co.'s sprawling distribution center in Belcamp would have an eye-popping power bill, with some 3,300 light fixtures and a refrigerated storage area big enough to drive forklifts in and out. But in the past year, the 81/3-acre Harford County warehouse has generated more power than it has consumed, making it the first "net-zero-energy" building in Maryland and one of a small but growing number nationwide. McCormick installed 7,500 solar panels on the vast rooftop, which generates enough power to offset the electricity the warehouse uses at night and on cloudy days. This session outlines McCormick’s journey to Net-zero along with the tremendous bottom-line and environmental benefits realized thereof.
