If utility rates increase at a conservative 3% per year, Ag operations now paying $250,000 a year for electricity can earn $7.5 MILLION SAVINGS over the warranted 25-year lifetime of a CalCom Solar system1
When it comes to solar for agricultural operations, one size does not fit all.
In fact, properly sizing an Ag solar photovoltaic (PV) panel system to meet the unique requirements of your individual Ag market segment is absolutely critical to maximizing ROI. Why?
- For irrigators such as almond growers, pistachio growers, row crop growers, or wineries, over-building or under-building a solar PV installation by just 5% can actually cost tens of thousands of dollars per pump over the life of a system
- Not forecasting potential expansion at businesses like cold storage facilities and food processors can lead to under-building, which means owners can pay tens of thousands more than they should for electricity purchases
CalComSolar’s expertise in understanding each Ag segment’s special requirements — combined with our advanced energy forecasting capabilities — allow us to precisely right-size your solar energy installation and deliver the best ROI possible.
