In recent years, more grower-shippers have undertaken solar power projects, including Los Angeles-based Paramount Farms Inc., CF Fresh, Sedro-Woolley, Wash.; Castle Rock Vineyards, Delano, Calif.; Primex Farms, Wasco, Calif.; and Giumarra Vineyards Corp., Bakersfield, Calif.

Part of the project’s financing came from incentives including federal stimulus funds, Procacci said.

Likening it to buying local produce, Procacci said company officials specified purchasing American-made panels to help keep U.S. jobs.

Santa Sweets scheduled an Oct. 12 grand opening celebration, inviting state and local officials.
