  3. New Solar Installation at Tracy Facility Shows Continued Dedication to Sustainability

    Taylor Farms Pacific in Tracy, CA announced a 8,204 solar panel system this week, our largest solar installation to date. The new solar array spans almost 300,000 square feet — 7.5 acres — of rooftop space, making it the largest private solar panel array in San Joaquin County!

    It will power 67% of the Tracy facility’s energy needs, providing 2.256 megawatts (MW) of direct current (DC) power to the facility. Annually, the panels will produce 3,697,800 kWh and reduce C02 emissions by 2,752 metric tons.

    In conjunction with this announcement, we hosted an Open House and Launch Party to celebrate the installation and the people of Taylor Farms. Mayor Robert Rickman, of the City of Tracy, delivered the keynote speech, and presented us a certificate of recognition for our commitment to sustainable and renewable energy.

    Nicole Flewell, Director of Sustainability, Taylor Farms, also spoke and touched on how sustainable initiatives like these help us care for the planet, our community, and our mission for a sustainable future.

    “Since 2012, Taylor Farms has invested in eight major projects in North America including solar, wind, fuel cells, and cogeneration. The company has installed five solar arrays at facilities — one in Texas, one in Tennessee, and three in California, which together generate 8.4 Million kWh per year,” says Flewell. “Taylor Farms has dedicated sustainability resources to determine the best energy and economic strategy for each of these locations.”

    Taylor Farms’ investments in sustainability projects have been widely embraced by customers and partners nationwide. Taylor Farms plans to continue pursuing opportunities to lead renewables projects across North America, with each project taking the company one-step further in its dedication to minimizing our environmental footprint, while delivering healthy fresh foods to our consumers.
