SED installed two solar arrays totaling 9.4kW at Whittier Fruit Farms in July 2013. The installation marked SEDs first commercial solar project in its home state of New York. The array is expected to cover 55% of the Farm’s electric load saving the family owned and operated farm about $20,000 over 25 years.
Whittier Fruit Farms is a family owned and operated farm since 1974 with fresh homegrown fruits and vegetables. The Fruit Stand is a family friendly experience where you can pick your own fruits, all from the ground, so no ladders are permitted. There is a play area with plenty of tables for children and parents to relax.
