Sakata Completes New Solar Energy Installation
Sakata Seed America Inc. is working on installing a new solar energy project at the companys U.S. headquarters in Morgan Hill, Calif. The project represents one of the largest solar-powered projects to date in Santa Clara County. “Sakata is an environmentally responsible company and is extremely interested in promoting care and respect for the natural world. By converting our beautiful California sunshine to electricity for powering our operations, we not only save costs but also reduce our carbon footprint and continue to contribute to the improvement of our environment,” said Dave Armstrong, president and CEO of Sakata Seed America. The Solar Co., a family-owned and operated solar panel installation company, will complete the entire 670-kilowatt generating system project. The 2,000 panel project can create over 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity and is projected to eliminate 100 percent of current electrical usage. Sakata has formed a team, called the GreenUp Team, consisting of staff members from a variety of departments to fulfill various sustainable efforts.
