Texas health food store also improves environmental health with Sunfinity-installed solar array
After more than three decades of doing business in the Dallas area, Ann’s Health Food Center & Market has found a new way to bring clean, healthy energy to his community. The company’s Waxahachie, Texas location, an 11,500 sq. ft. two-story building on Highway 77, will begin to run on solar power with a new system designed and installed by Dallas-based Sunfinity Renewable Energy.
While the 199 panel, 78.61 kW system will deliver savings to the business – it is estimated to offset 30% of the electricity needed to power the operation with savings of more than $200,000.00 over the lifetime of the the system – the owners feel equally strongly about the system’s positive environmental impact.
“Ann’s is all about health and wellness for everyone. Adding and using solar energy from the sun is another great step in reaching Ann’s goal of doing business for your health,” said Matthew Munchrath, a third-generation member of the family who owns the three Ann’s Health Food Center and Market founded and still runs locations.
Ann’s Health Food Center & Market in Waxahachie offers a selection of healthy foods and organic products along with vitamins, supplements and natural body care products. Customers can also enjoy a full-service organic cafe and smoothie bar, serving freshly made burgers, salads, sandwiches and vegetarian options.
“Solar is really taking off in North Texas with companies of all sizes,” said John Billingsley, chairman and CEO of Sunfinity Renewable Energy. “It’s a win-win situation, and Ann’s is an excellent example of solar energy helping a commercial enterprise improve the quality of the local environment and improve their bottom line at the same time. With the explosive growth we are seeing in the Metroplex, it is becoming increasingly important to maintain our air quality, and solar power is doing just that.”
