SOLAR SOLUTIONS FOR ALMOND GROWERS & ORCHARDS

 

Almond growers and orchards across California are realizing sustained utility-cost savings with solar power.

There’s never been a better time to be in the almond business. Advances in automation and increasing adoption of micro-irrigation technologies have made it cheaper and easier to grow almonds. These efficiencies, along with growing consumer demand for almonds across multiple product lines equals huge opportunity for almond growers. But what if you could make your farming operation even more efficient and more effective? For almond growers pumping water to hundreds of thousands of trees across thousands of acres, it’s worth taking another look at solar.

Federal and state incentives and California’s Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA) have the potential to dramatically accelerate the ROI on solar for growers. But what does the ROI look like for your orchard? That’s where we come in. Founded in 1986, Coldwell Solar is the #1 family-owned commercial solar company in California. We partner with growers of tree nuts, to help you dramatically reduce (and even eliminate) your energy costs. In fact, we’ve partnered with 15 growers to install more than 6 megawatts of solar in California.
