SARATOGA SPRINGS — As part of its sustainability strategy and in recognition of Earth Month, Hannaford Supermarkets this week announced its plan to be fully powered by renewable energy by 2024—a commitment that makes the retailer the first large-scale supermarket business to match its bold commitment with such an aggressive timetable.

“Doing what’s right for our business includes doing what’s right for our associates, community, and our planet. Powering Hannaford with 100-percent renewable energy sources will make an immediate, positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions,” said Mike Vail, President of Hannaford Supermarkets, in a statement. “This is an important leap forward in our sustainability journey—and one that we hope sparks others to join. Prioritizing the health of our communities and the planet is a win for us all.” 

Supermarkets are energy intensive due to simultaneous needs of heating and cooling. To reduce energy consumption and make the best use of the energy being used, Hannaford has implemented energy efficiency projects like LED lights, night shades, doors on cases and state-of-the-art refrigeration systems—and has rooftop solar on 10 of its stores. 

Currently, Hannaford operates at 30% renewable energy by partnering with over 30 community solar projects across Maine, Massachusetts, and New York. For more information about Hannaford’s sustainability efforts, go to: www.Hannaford.com/sustainability.
