The 2010 solar installation of 1 Megawatt includes 5,488 panels sitting on 6 acres (2.4 hectares). It produces 1,790,000 kwh per year, offsetting 95% of annual energy consumption. Each day the system offsets an average of 8,300 lbs. of CO2 and 30 lbs. of SO2
Other examples of our efforts to be economically and environmentally sustainable include recycling of packaging, motion sensor lighting, and natural kraft corrugated packaging.
Our orchards are farmed in a sustainable manner beginning with drip irrigation and variable frequency drives, all the way to shredding and re-working our pruning clippings into the soil.
