Solar Electricity Powers Second Harvest Food Bank
People in need living in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties will soon receive food from Second Harvest’s new, solar powered facility. PG&E bestowed a solar grant on the non-profit to help make the project possible.
Benefits of Solar Energy for the Non-Profit
The 322 kW system has saved the San Jose facility over $60,000. The solar energy savings will allow Second Harvest to distribute over 120,000 additional meals for people in need. Over 25 years, the solar panels are predicted to help the food bank save over $3 million.
“As a leader in the community, Second Harvest Food Bank provides much needed services to thousands of families,” Rubin said. “The leadership the Second Harvest Food Bank has shown demonstrates a commitment to the environment that we wholeheartedly share at PG&E.”
