Agway Powered by the Sun

Did you know that our Orleans Store is powered by the sun? Solar panels were installed last May and we’re now producing more than 30,000 kWh a year of green energy!

The addition of solar panels was part of a large remodel and renovation project at our store in Orleans — Agway of Cape Cod’s original location — located at 20 Lots Hollow Road.

Family owned and operated since 1993, Agway of Cape Cod has always had a green thumb and warm heart for our planet. This project is part of Agway’s overall green initiatives, which also includes recycling plant pots, cardboard and paper, single stream recycling, and offering only reusable/recyclable plastic and paper shopping bags. Agway’s also proud of their Mutt Mitt program, donating and distributing Mutt Mitts to local parks and outdoor areas to keep our community and waters free of pet waste.

Agway partnered with Abe Boyle at My Generation Energy, a local solar provider founded in Brewster in 2008, now based in Dennis for the installation of  74 LG high efficiency  solar panels. My Generation Energy is a full-service solar energy company that has installed hundreds of residential and commercial solar arrays from north of Boston to Rhode Island.

“All of us here at My Generation Energy are thrilled with our new partnership with Agway!  Nothing could be closer to our mission as a company than  helping a local, family owned business, like Agway increase their energy efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint and improve their bottom line,”  said Abe, Regional Manager at My Generation Energy.

There are tons of great reasons to choose solar, including cost savings, efficiency and love of the Cape!  Did you know that the average home solar system offsets about 100,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide in 20 years – the equivalent of driving a car for 100,000 miles?

If you’re interested in going solar, we recommend you contact Abe Boyle at MGE!
