Taylor Farms, one of the biggest worldwide producers of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, is looking to make a change in their alternative energy process. Fossil fuels are used frequently in order to utilize farming equipment to reach the demand required for their customers. Their facility in Gonzales, California, will eliminate majority use of fossil fuels and will be powered from three different renewable sources.

The company’s goal is to offset their energy consumption by 90 percent through the use of wind, solar, and cogeneration systems. With the Gonzales’ production plant checking in at 192,000 square feet, the three sources should be able to achieve that percentile with 4.25 megawatts of energy. The official website believes that it can achieve 100 percent renewable energy at times, but the average will put the figure at the 90 percent goal.
