Energy

McEntire Produce SustainabilityEnergy efficiency is an essential component to our sustainability business plan. Our management team meets regularly to review production procedures and make efficiency improvements where needed. Running a tight ship is key to our success.

In addition to production line efficiency, McEntire Produce completed a large scale LED  retrofit of our facility in 2015.

We are in continued partnership with SouthPoint Solutions and Orion Energy Systems Southeast to expand our efforts in this area.

Thus far, our upgrades will result in reducing:
  • 186.6 tons of Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere
This reduction is equivalent to:
  • Planting 52 acres of trees
  • Removing 45 cars from the road each year
  • Saving 552 barrels of oil annually or
  • Saving 23,176 gallons of gasoline annually
