Sunworks Inc., a provider of solar power solutions for agriculture, commercial, industrial (ACI) and residential markets, has announced a new 665 kW solar power construction project for Togninali Farms, a third-generation tomato farm in Stockton, Calif. Togninali Farms selected Sunworks to help lower its operating costs and advance sustainable growth initiatives.
Reducing and stabilizing expenses is a key component to Togninali Farm’s efforts to enhance operational efficiency and profitability. Togninali Farms will use Sunworks’ solar panels to produce 1,034,645 kWh of electricity per year, which is equivalent to 97% of the farm’s annual energy consumption. The farm’s new ground-mount installation includes Sunworks’ Rapid Rack system, a clamp-free racking system with insertion rail technology. In total, Sunworks says it will aggregate 18 utility meters as part of its deployment.
Chuck Cargile, CEO of Sunworks, comments, “We’re delighted to work with Togninali Farms, a century-old growing operation that continues to innovate and lead the way for California’s agricultural industry. This partnership will provide quantifiable benefits to minimize near-term production costs at the farm while providing a scalable platform for stable and reliable renewable energy that can expand over time.”
