Headquartered in Cape Coral, natural health company Mercola recently completed a six-month-long project of installing 529 solar panels to its new rooftop.

Installed by commercial solar contractor Advanced Green Technologies (AGT), these new panels will provide 210kw of energy, providing half of Mercola’s overall energy needs. The company is now one the largest in Cape Coral that’s powered by solar energy.

“Cape Coral is the perfect location for investing in solar power, as solar technology has become more affordable and efficient each year,” says Steve Rye, CEO of Mercola. “Now that we’ve fully utilized our rooftop space, we’re going to build carports in the parking lot to provide some shade and protection for our employees’ vehicles while also generating enough power that will get us to 100 percent of our energy requirements.”

Mercola’s solar carport will be finished by the end of this year.
