Costa Farms has begun installing new solar panels at the company’s headquarters in Miami. Two other buildings will also be receiving part of the 861 solar panels that cover 22,386 square feet and generate approximately 386,534 kilowatt-hours, with zero greenhouse gas emissions annually. The company will rely on the panels for 25 percent of its energy usage, with energy savings that equal reducing barrels of oil by 574 gallons, propane use by 185,058 pounds, or recycling 85 tons of waste per year.
