Grower and producer of mushroom superfoods in California, Hokto Kinoko utilizes a Revel Energy commercial solar and energy storage installation to reduce energy costs by approximately 60%. One of many California businesses lowering energy costs and raising net income.
Researchers at Hokto Kinoko believe mushrooms are the ultimate superfood, packed with health benefits yet to be fully realized by the American public. Hokto’s state-of-the-art facility in San Marcos, CA, is used for production and research.
Prior to Revel Energy installing a comprehensive commercial solar power system, the building used over 2,710,000 kWh per year. Hokto was spending a significant portion of operating costs in electrical usage and demand charges. Adding to expenses, the facility needed a new commercial roof.
The system is comprised of 2,960 monocrystalline 360W solar panels and a 285 kW – 405 kWh energy storage system. Hokto will offset their energy consumption from San Diego Gas & Electric with 60% renewable energy.
Considering rising energy costs, Hokto Kinoko will save an estimated $9.7m over 25 years. Future expenses like these are common for California businesses. Commercial solar is essential for controling California’s rising utility costs, averaging 3+% growth per year.
