US packaging producer Sealed Air (NYSE:SEE) said today it has installed a 3.5-MW ground-mount solar array at its manufacturing facility in Madera, California in partnership with TotalEnergies SE (EPA:TTE).

The company invested USD 9 million (EUR 9.1m) in the solar farm, which is coupled with a 770-kW/3,080 kWh battery and is now powering the plant producing its BUBBLE WRAP brand packaging and other products. SEE partnered with TotalEnergies to design and install the project. The French energy group recently acquired the industrial and commercial solar operations of SunPower Corp (NASDAQ:SPWR).

The installation is the largest floating solar power plant in the US Southeast located in Fort Bragg, North Carolina

Floating solar had a moment in the spotlight over the weekend when the US Army unveiled a new solar plant sitting atop the Big Muddy Lake at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. It’s the first floating solar array deployed by the Department of Defense, and it’s part of a growing current of support in the US for “floatovoltaics.”

The army says its goal is to boost clean energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and give the nearby training facility a source of backup energy during power outages. The panels will be able to generate about one megawatt of electricity, which can typically power about 190 homes.

Here on Earth, solar power is one of the ultimate sources of off-grid electricity. Unless you’re in the far north and don’t get sunlight half the year or you’re somewhere that’s frequently cloudy, it’s a very dependable source of electricity that can be used to charge batteries and power everything from a phone, to a small refrigerator ice chest, to a whole house or EV. So, it’s a great alternative.

In space, you have less of a choice. Even as close to earth as the International Space Station or China’s Tiangong Space Station, you can’t exactly drive to town to get more fuel for your trusty Honda generator. Not only are you always at least 250 miles from the nearest town, but getting things into earth orbit takes a lot of energy. Even if your old lawnmower-engined generator could work in space (it can’t run without oxygen), bringing fuel for the thing would be prohibitively expensive.

On Jan. 27, the City of Sierra Madre broke ground on the Sierra Madre Solar Array Project, and on April 22 – also known as Earth Day — they completed the project and hosted the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

The project, located at 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd., contains a 554.58 kilowatt (kW) solar ground-mounted system and a 111 kW battery energy storage system (BESS). The solar panels are located on approximately two acres of city-owned property.

The solar array utilizes anti-reflective technology to reduce reflection and convert sunlight directly into electricity. The project is estimated to generate 948,332 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy, which will offset approximately 38% of the energy to the city’s water department facility, which pumps and distributes the city’s water supply.
