Wm. Bolthouse Farms Inc. and MMA Renewable Ventures have completed a 1.9 MW solar power system at Bolthouse's farms in Palmdale, Calif. The system, installed at Bolthouse's S&P and Rowen Farms, is owned and operated by MMA. Regenesis Power of Simi Valley designed and installed the solar tracking array, which uses 10,300 solar panels from Mitsubishi Electric.
By leveraging federal tax credits and other state incentives, MMA enabled Bolthouse Farms to deploy the 1.9 MW solar array under a power purchase agreement. The solar array was designed to provide nearly 80% of the electricity used to power Bolthouse's operations.
