Solar is an innovative, clean, renewable energy investment that harnesses the power of the sun and reduces financial pressure on our clients, which include growers, processors and commercial facilities. Given our ample sun here in the Valley, it’s no wonder people are interested in this renewable resource. So how can solar become the ideal solution for you?
We want clients to transition to a rate schedule that best suits them with the highest cost per kilowatt, per hour, with the lowest demand charge. We help our ag customers switch to an alternative schedule with higher energy rates and lower demand charges, which will eliminate a greater portion of their total energy bill. In special cases, certain commercial users can optimize their savings by switching to a solar friendly rate that eliminates all demand charges. This means virtually a 100% bill offset!
Do I Have Enough Space to Install Solar?
Fixed ground mount systems typically provide the best ROI and allow for the most flexible placement of systems. If you have severe space constraints, there are still viable options to find a solar solution. Covered shade structures can be stand-alone or incorporated into existing structures, such as rooftops. The additional cost of the structure will also qualify for the 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit, and add additional value to the property.

The Truth About Solar
Solar is not the best fit for all businesses. However, for the right business it can be a game changer. From day one, you can save 40 percent or more on your power bill. For some of our clients, a solar installation pays for itself within three years. If your business is ag related and you’re looking for long-term reduced energy costs, solar is the solution for you.
