Cenergy Power, one of California's leading commercial solar developers, has completed a 1.108 megawatt solar PV system for Primex Farms at their state-of-the-art Wasco processing facility. Primex is a leading grower/processor of pistachios and trader of dried fruits and nuts.
The 1.108 MW solar system, which spans across ground space, carports and two facility roofs, is a reliable source of clean energy that will serve to enhance Primex's reputation as a leader in sustainable green energy practices. The environmental attributes associated with the solar plant will offset more than 40 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) for the next 20 years and will produce an estimated 1.7 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy annually.
"The massive solar system at our Wasco facility will demonstrate Primex's ongoing dedication to sustainable business," said Dr. Ali Amin, CEO of Primex Farms. "Our primary goal is to provide our growers with outstanding value for their crop and the strong solar savings from Cenergy's turnkey solar solution will help advance this objective."
"Primex Farms is one of many conscientious businesses we're seeing throughout California turning to solar power to reduce their energy footprint," said Nader Yarpezeshkan, Director of Business Development for Cenergy Power. "We are honored to be part of Primex's effort to reduce its energy overhead with clean solar power."
As part of the solar arrangement, Cenergy Power will be providing 10 years of operations and maintenance services, including but not limited to touch-free panel cleanings, preventative maintenance, and unscheduled repairs.
