Good “green” news: our bottling plant just completed installation of their state-of-the-art solar water heating array.
Solar panel system saves energy: The bottler of Fave™ has installed the largest solar water heating system in the State of California. About 20,000 square feet of solar panels on the roof of the Gridley, California processing facility save 37,584 therms of natural gas annually.
37,584 therms is equal to 1 million kWh. This is a carbon footprint offset of 1.4 million lbs of CO2, or the equivalent of removing 2,000 cars from the roads annually.
Next time you enjoy a delicious Fave, know that we value being green, even though none of our great flavors are actually green in color.
Now do your part … go turn off a light bulb somewhere, and take a walk outside!
