GrandyOats – Hiram, Maine
An 80.64kW solar energy system installed for Grandy Oats in Hiram, Maine. GrandyOats is an organic foods company provided certified organic and kosher foods including granolas, trail mix, roasted nuts, hot cereal and more.
Their new facility will be Maine’s first 100% solar-powered net zero food production facility, encompassing all areas of the facility from cooking the food (electric ovens), heating (heat pumps), electric forklifts, computers, lighting, etc. The facility is based in an old elementary school, and the 288 solar panels are mounted in the old ball field. With this move, GrandyOats positions their business to scale nationally and becomes Hiram’s largest employer. Find out more about their products (and get some recipes!) at https://www.grandyoats.com/
