D'Arrigo Bros. Co.

For  generations, D'Arrigo Bros. Co., of CA -- located in Salinas, CA -- has been a premier grower, packer, and shipper of quality fruits and vegetables. “We’ve always put our strong sustainability ethic into practice. Harvesting the sun’s power to generate electricity is consistent with our goals,” said John D’Arrigo, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the D’Arrigo Bros. board.

In addition, the project features the latest NEXTracker single-axis tracking technology for maximum efficiency and lowest possible installation costs.
