Sunworks installed a new 416-kW solar power construction project for Avenales Cattle Company in Shandon, California. Sunworks specializes in agricultural solar installations and last month announced a similar project that will assist in powering water distribution efforts for farming operations.
“Delivering solar projects that yield long-term savings, tax benefits and near-zero electricity rates for farms, orchards, ranches and dairy producers has been a fundamental part of our business since inception,” said Sunworks CEO Chuck Cargile. “This project will lower operating costs for the Avenales Cattle Company while optimizing crucial real estate and powering feedlot operations that are mission-critical.”
Construction of the new $800,000 ground-mount system is expected to begin in the fourth quarter this year.
“Our family has been raising cattle for nearly 150 years. Rising electricity costs are increasingly impacting our operations,” said Steve Sinton third-generation owner of Avenales Cattle Company. “Partnering with a full-service organization like Sunworks allows us to outsource this project from start to finish while we focus on our operations.”
