Vineyard Agricultural Solar
California’s vineyards and agricultural industry account for the highest portion of the United States’ agricultural economy with 13% of the nation’s total agricultural value, more and more are saving on their rising electricity costs with solar. Over one-third of the country’s vegetables and two-thirds of nuts and fruits come from California farmers.
California’s growers and packagers, as well as dairy, livestock, and vineyards consume the lions share of electricity for the state. Agricultural solar and other on-farm renewable energies help farms and vineyards lower their electricity bills and increase capital.
As no two agricultural operations are alike, Revel custom tailors each energy solution to each specific customer’s needs.
This vineyard in Bakersfield, CA took advantage of multiple benefits that help reduce the total cost of the project and further cut electricity costs through the life of the agricultural solar system.
Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA)
Vineyards and other agricultural operations with multiple meters on one property or spread out over adjacent properties use the NEMA program to increase their energy savings with solar. The program eliminates the need for building a solar array at each meter and instead one meter ties into each applicable meter.

Significant Benefits - Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
Previously scheduled to step-down in 2021, the Solar ITC (Investment Tax Credit) was extended as part of the COVID-19 relief spending. This translates into a 4% discount and shorter payback period for businesses still looking to go solar.
Businesses with high electricity costs investing in solar take advantage of the dollar-for-dollar tax credit, all while reducing electricity bills and reliance on aging infrastructure.
The first step-down phase in 2020 dropped the Solar ITC from 30 to 26%, and instead of another 4% dip for 2021, the credit value was extended and will stay at 26% until 2023.
