At Verena Street Coffee Co., we're thrilled to share the exciting news of our transition to solar energy! In addition to the natural gas employed in our roasting process, electricity constitutes the second most significant energy source across various stages of our operations. From grinding and packaging to warehouse management and distribution processes, electricity plays a crucial role in powering our roasting and packaging facility. Through a partnership with Blue Sky Solar Co. of Dubuque, IA, we've installed a cutting-edge solar array on the roof of our facility that's set to offset roughly 110% of our current electricity usage. This means we're not just minimizing our environmental impact; we're also producing surplus energy, allowing us to grow sustainably for years before our energy needs surpass our production capacity.

The advantages resulting from this transition are multifaceted. Within a remarkably short span of 2-3 years, the system is projected to cover its costs through a combination of tax incentives and substantial energy savings. Furthermore, in light of the consistent annual escalation in electricity rates, our solar infrastructure guarantees ongoing cost efficiencies, thus affirming our dedication to environmental stewardship while delivering escalating financial benefits.

More than being a green energy choice, our solar system aligns seamlessly with our core values. It exemplifies our dedication to continuous improvement, ensuring that we uphold our promise to customers—providing high-quality, sustainably sourced coffee that's not only convenient but also affordable.

As part of our ongoing efforts to embrace renewable energy sources, we're excited to reveal our upcoming packaging update that proudly showcases our transition to solar energy. The introduction of our new "powered by solar" icon serves as a powerful symbol of our unwavering commitment to harnessing clean, eco-friendly power, exemplifying our core values once more. Once the final touches are applied to our revised packaging, it will serve as a true embodiment of our dedication to both excellence and sustainability, reflecting our ongoing pledge to environmental responsibility.

Join us in celebrating this step forward, as we take pride in delivering exceptional coffee while contributing positively to the planet. We remain committed to progress, sustainability, and serving our valued customers with the finest coffee experience. Your support fuels our commitment to excellence and environmental responsibility, ensuring a brighter, more sustainable future with every cup we serve.
