Bee Sweet Citrus based in Fowler, Calif. is going solar to further reduce the company’s carbon footprint, according to President Jim Marderosian.
“Bee Sweet Citrus is committed to reducing our carbon footprint,” Marderosian said.
“Logically, going solar was the next step as we continue to be a leader in sustainability.”
Bee Sweet has contracted with Picket Solar in Fresno, Calif. to incorporate a high-tech, 2.4 megawatt solar system to offset its current electricity use.
Besides going solar, other environmental sustainability practices utilized by Bee Sweet include water conservation, electric forklifts, and recyclable packaging materials.
“Bee Sweet Citrus is a leader in the citrus industry, and reducing our carbon footprint is one of our main priorities,” Marderosian.
“It is our goal to not only provide the world with fresh, delicious citrus, but to be an environmental steward as well.”
