The project was installed for Danell Brothers Dairy, which will provide farm owners with annual savings of more than $650,000 through lower energy costs and greater energy resilience amid progressively worse weather and associated power outages.

“From their versatile and reliable TDP and TDP 2.0 solar trackers to their robust project support services at every stage of every project, Solar FlexRack has been and will continue to be an ideal long-term supplier,” said Dusty Howze, President of Renewable. solar. “We are excited to continue working with Solar FlexRack to efficiently run complementary solar projects that deliver long-term savings and energy independence for local farmers – while creating a more sustainable planet.”

With utility rates for dairies in California soaring by a staggering 54% over the past 10 years, more and more energy-intensive dairies are turning to solar power to lower operating costs. More than 150 of the state’s dairies now generate solar energy, and according to a recent study, California dairies have reduced greenhouse gas emissions per gallon of milk produced by 45% over a 50-year period.

“We are proud to have been able to partner with Renewable Solar over the years to deliver high quality clean energy systems and associated cost savings to farmers in California,” said Steve Daniel, executive VP of Solar FlexRack. “We look forward to continuing to partner with Renewable Solar on additional agricultural solar projects in support of California’s leading renewable portfolio standard.”

Solar FlexRack reported that its single-axis trackers have been installed in more than 80 agricultural solar projects in California.
