McClellan Park is Sustainable

We are deeply committed to sustainability, actively pursuing goals that include significantly reducing our carbon footprint and enhancing energy efficiency. One of our major sustainability initiatives is the installation of solar panels, with plans to produce 1.5 megawatts of AC power. This project, currently in the permitting phase, is a bold step toward harnessing renewable energy, aiming to decrease our reliance on the grid and further our sustainability efforts.
We’ve also embarked on the electrification of our fleet, beginning with electric yard trucks and planning to expand this to include more electric vehicles. This move is part of our broader commitment to lower emissions and promote sustainability in our transportation operations.
Our collaboration with local utility providers has been instrumental in advancing our sustainability goals. Through this partnership, we’ve been able to invest in technology and infrastructure improvements, including enhanced time-of-day cooling and automated energy controls. These advancements, managed through modern, computer-controlled systems, have significantly boosted our efficiency and effectiveness in energy use.
“By being enrolled in Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s PowerDirect program, US Cold is supporting our community and helping save energy when demand for electricity is at its peak. SMUD’s on an ambitious path to eliminate carbon emissions from our power supply by 2030, and it’s going to take everyone to play a part in getting to a clean energy future. Partnerships like the one we have with USCS is the kind of collaboration we need today, for a more sustainable tomorrow.”
