Sunworks Inc., a provider of solar solutions for agriculture, commercial and industrial, public works, and residential markets, is building a new 751 kW solar project for Plumas Mutual Water District, a company in Yuba City, Calif., that distributes water for farming operations.
Construction of the $1.3 million ground-mount system in Northern California is expected to commence later this year.
“Water districts in California are faced with many challenges, including water shortages, drought and resiliency challenges,” comments Chuck Cargile, CEO of Sunworks. “Solar can help address these issues in a cost-effective way while also helping to ensure crop production and yield are maximized.”
Joe Danna, director of Plumas Mutual, adds, “From our first meeting, it was clear that the Sunworks team had a strong understanding of our challenges and goals. They designed a system that was tailored to our requirements and helped us understand how we can maximize our cost so we can serve our customers in a more sustainable and resilient way.”
