Dold Foods, a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corp., recently partnered up in a community solar project to expand its renewable energy use at its Kansas facility.

The 1.2-MW installation of nearly 4,000 solar panels in South Hutchinson, Kan., will supply power to multiple customers in the area through a partnership Westar Energy and SoCore Energy. Dold Foods’ Wichita, Kan., facility will be receiving about 20% of the energy generated by the solar plant, according to a news release.
