CalCom Solar has commenced installation of a 1.1 MW solar power system at Medeiros and Son Dairy in Hanford, California. CalCom Solar is deploying NEXTracker technology in this array, and the project will be completed in Summer 2015.
Beginning in Q3 2015, Medeiros will save about $320,000 annually on utility bills. According to the dairy, by deploying solar, it will also be able to reduce its peak-hour electrical demand on fans, chillers and well pumps.
The new PV array deployment leverages Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA), affording CalCom the ability to install Medeiros’ solar array where it can return dividends on once unproductive ground.
