Anderson Orchards, Phase 2

Glenn, CA

After a highly successful Phase 1 solar power installation, Anderson Orchards—a prominent grower on the Westside of the San Joaquin Valley—returned to CalCom Solar and asked us to build a second, larger solar array to power irrigation pumping for other row crops in their portfolio.

Benefits:

  • 1.1 megawatt Ground Mount System
  • $267,000 reduction in annual energy expense
  • Low rates locked in for next 25 years
  • 67% reduction in energy costs
  • Total lifetime savings of over $8 million dollars
