Fruit grower, processor and shipper Rivermaid Trading Co. produces more than 50% of the pears in California and 8% of the state’s cherry crop. Processing such large quantities of fruit to arrive at market in peak condition requires substantial energy for fruit processing machines and cold storage. Rivermaid was looking for a way to offset electricity costs with a clean energy solution that was as sustainable as the farming operation itself.
