We recently completed construction on a 247 panel solar power system at the store. 221 panels are mounted on the roof and 26 panels are mounted on the ground. Each panel generates 230 watts each, giving us the ability to generate 56KW of electricity. This will cover approximately 80% of our electric needs throughout the year.

Our goal from the start was to reduce our impact on the environment and realize the economic benefits of solar power. We have a long tradition of carrying products that are safer on the environment such as organic fertilizers, animal feeds, insect control and plants.
