Testimonial

“Due to our constant refrigeration demands, we sought a solution that would offset rising utility costs and make a positive environmental impact”
janice honigberg
President, Sun Belle Inc.

customer's goals

As a produce company internationally recognized for their high quality berries, Sun Belle’s focus is on strong relationships with growers, sustainable land practices and the value of their products to the consumer. In line with their brand philosophy, they saw solar as a natural fit for their organization, ensuring their building was as environmentally friendly as their products. In addition, with the warehouse in Jessup MD running refrigeration units to keep their products fresh, rising utility costs had become an increasing burden.

aurora's solution

Once Sun Belle decided to go solar, they chose Aurora to install their system based on our competitive pricing and easy working relationship. Utilizing usable space on the roof of the warehouse and adjacent field, the Aurora team was able to design a 450 kW rooftop system coupled with a 225 kW ground mount system (with an accompanying pollinator meadow) to offset over half of the warehouse’s energy needs, reducing their utility bills significantly.

project results

Once the ground mount system was complete, the pollinator meadow was planted using native plants, creating an ecosystem adjacent to the PV array.  With an energy-producing system that benefits both the environment and their bottom line, Sun Belle has found a win-win solution. By preventing 630 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere annually and saving over $1 million over the life of the system, Sun Belle has achieved a positive balance with an operations decision that was just smart business.
