Potatoes and broccoli will be packed and cooled in one of the largest South Island solar installations

Oakley’s Premium Fresh Vegetables have announced the installation of 564 solar panels to power their Southbridge post-harvest site in Canterbury. 

Potatoes and broccoli will be packed and cooled in one of the largest South Island solar installations providing for 40% of Oakley’s yearly energy demands using 390-watt panels. Oakley’s worked with CPS Solar to implement the grid-tied solar system where significant tons of spuds will be washed and graded using natural sun power. This reduces carbon emissions efficiently storing, washing, packing and dispatching fresh vegetables across the country reports www.scoop.co.nz
