Farr’s True Value Hardware store looks to the future; invests in a major solar panel upgrade

The World newspaper recently profiled our parent company’s solar power project for Farr’s True Value out of Coos Bay, Oregon.

The head of our Oregon location, Jason Traylor, oversaw the installation of more than 200 solar panels for the 100-year-old company. The move will help them gain independence from the local utility company and is part of a major investment towards their next 100 years in business.

From the article:

Third generation and co-owner Jay Farr said installing the panels had been on his mind for quite some time, but after receiving an assessment from Coastal Solar Oregon he knew it was time to do it.

“It’s a renewable energy source that doesn’t create carbon dioxide,” said Farr. “It’s going to help in our business because it’s going to drop and lower our power bill hopefully to zero.”

Congratulation to Farr’s True Value and our Oregon team!
