Long Life Farms in Thermal, California the largest US grower of Asian specialty crops. The highly industrialized farm pays some of the highest electricity rates in the country.
As their operation grew, so did their electricity needs. Long Life Farms decided not to allow a utility to dictate their electricity costs – giving way to multiple phases of agricultural solar installations.
Revel Energy recently completed the third-phase expansion for Long Life Farms, fitting slightly over 897 kW of ground mount solar panels to help offset growing electricity bills.
The phase three system is spread out over two locations totaling almost 2,400 panels. The DC power is converted to usable AC over 13 inverters.
The estimated annual power generation is 1.6 million kilowatt-hours, saving the farm an additional $200,000 or more in electricity costs each year. The new addition is projected to save more than $6 million in electricity costs over the lifespan of the system.
The third phase makes up 45% of Long Life Farms’ entire agricultural solar system. With a combined system size of over 2 megawatts, the first two phases were developed in recent years as their operation expanded, the third phase was the final planned installment.
With rising electricity costs slated to hit historical highs, the system is expected to produce much-needed electricity, lowering operating costs and saving cash for the business.
Revel Energy’s team of agricultural solar specialists offers turnkey solutions for California farmers and businesses to lower their electricity costs-ultimately increasing cash flow.
