SOLAR SOLUTIONS FOR FOOD PROCESSORS

 

Solar, a sustainable solution for lowering the costs of your processing business.

The process of moving food from the farm to the table is very energy-intensive. According to the NRDC, it consumes up to 10 percent of the total United States’ energy budget. Food processing plants play an important role in this value chain. Farmers count on you to maximize the value of their harvest. Distributors and their customers demand only the highest degree of food quality, safety and sustainability standards. Solar is an economically and environmentally sustainable way to reduce (or even eliminate) your energy costs.
