Valley Fig Growers has announced it will spend more than a million dollars on solar power.

The Fresno-based company says it will install a $1.4 million solar array that will generate 60-percent of its power.

Construction of the project will get underway this month with a 100-day planned build out.

"Valley Fig Growers" has been around since 1959 and is the largest handler of figs in North America.
