Stonyfield Farm’s Solar Panel and Global Warming

Ah, the dawn of spring. This is the time of year when Maple trees are tapped for their syrup. The trees thrive and produce the sap for maple syrup under certain temperature cycles. It’s one of nature’s delicate miracles – which could disappear if we don’t do something to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are making New England winters milder with each passing year.

As part of their commitment to save New England’s sweet Maple legacy, Stonyfield Farm (the New Hampshire dairy product company that happens to make a great Organic Maple Vanilla yogurt) has installed a 50 kilowatt (kW) solar energy system atop its 120,000 square-foot manufacturing facility as a way to fight global warming. The solar panel array is the largest of its kind in New Hampshire.
