United Solar, a subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices, will supply the more than 37,000 thin-film photovoltaic solar panels for North America's largest rooftop solar power installation at a Toys"R"Us distribution center in Flanders, New Jersey.

The 5.38-megawatts (MW) installation is expected to produce approximately 6,362,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, generating 72% of the distribution facility’s electrical needs across approximately 20 acres of rooftop space.  Construction is expected to begin this summer.

The Flanders Toys”R”Us facility covers over 1.5 million square feet, with a roof that spans 32 acres.  It supports fulfillment and replenishment needs for Toys”R”Us stores through the northeast.
