Utz Quality Foods Inc. said it is now powering its distribution plant in West Deptford with a solar photovoltaic system capable of producing enough electricity to offset 100 percent of the facility's utility usage.

The system is expected to produce 121,170 kWh annually.

Hanover, Pa.-based Utz hired SunWire Energy and Nations Roof to design and install the rooftop solar array at the plant, which services the Philadelphia market and Jersey Shore points.    - Reid Kanaley
