  “Solar electricity is the right thing to do—for the environment, the community, and for my business.” – Pat Ricchiuti, Owner, P-R Farms   With the goal of helping to reduce air pollution in California’s Central Valley, an area that suffers from large amounts of pollution due to industrial activities and regional weather patterns, Pat Ricchiuti, owner of P-R Farms, decided to install a large-scale SunPower solar electric system atop its packing facility. This facility processes about 1.5 million boxes of fruit each year. The deployment, which covers 98,000 square feet and provides 50% of the facility’s electricity, was one of the largest in the nation when completed. “Using solar energy to power our operations is consistent with our sustainability ethic and creative approach to managing our operations,” said Ricchiuti.
