SOLAR SOLUTIONS FOR AGRICULTURE & FARMS
All types of agricultural businesses in California’s Central Valley are leveraging the power of solar energy to save on power utility costs and improve sustainability.
Solar is an economically and environmentally sustainable way to reduce (or even eliminate) your energy costs. For agricultural businesses with energy bills that exceed $50,000 a month, solar simply makes financial sense. Dairies and growers across California face so much unpredictability—fluctuating market prices, changing regulations, labor shortages and more. Solar delivers sustained energy cost savings and the peace of mind that you’re making the right investment for your ag business. For this generation and the next.
Making the transition to solar is a big decision. The good news is falling technology costs, government incentives and California’s Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA) have the potential to dramatically accelerate the ROI on solar. But what does the ROI look like for your farm or dairy? That’s where Coldwell Solar comes in. We’ve completed more than 80 ag projects in California to deploy more than 66 megawatts of solar energy. That’s enough energy to power the top 10 agricultural counties in California for a whole year.
Featured Customer Story
