Severt & Sons Produce is a third generation family owned and operated grower, shipper and wholesaler of fresh fruits and vegetables serving the east coast. Their commitment to the environment and to sustainability led them to seek out alternate solutions for their building’s energy production. A1A Solar installed a 464kW roof-mounted system which now offsets 77% of their annual usage, saving them thousands each year. This savings, combined with tax incentives, will pay for the system in just under 4 years.
“Installing solar panels on our warehouse shows our commitment to our environment. Our business is directly dependent on our environment and it’s important for us to maintain the highest standard of environmentally friendly business methods.”– Mike Severt, president of Severt & Sons.
Utilizing their own clean energy power plant solves Severt’s problem of balancing their responsibility to the environment with their high energy usage demands each year. With solar, they’re saving money AND the planet.
