Taylor Farms now has solar arrays helping power six of its facilities, and its newest and largest installation is in Tracy, Calif.
That setup will provide two-thirds of the energy needed to power the facility, according to a news release.
More than 8,200 panels comprise the solar array, which covers 300,000 square feet.
“I am thrilled to see yet another one of our sustainability projects come to fruition, and this is one of our most exciting projects to date,” Nicole Flewell, director of sustainability for Taylor Farms, said in the release. “With each installation, whether solar, wind or cogeneration, we continue to add clean power to our facilities nationwide in the most sustainable manner possible.”
Salinas, Calif.-based Taylor Farms also has solar arrays at three other California facilities and at ones in Texas and Tennessee.
Together, those systems generate more than 8 million kilowatts per year.
Taylor Farms has also invested in wind, fuel cell and cogeneration energy projects.
