At our facility we strive to optimize efficiencies while doing our best to manage the energy grid. For several years we have participated in Pacific Gas and Electric’s demand response program for grid stability, management and monitoring. In August of 2014, we completed the installation of a 1.2 mW solar facility at our forced air cooling facility in Firebaugh. The system has 3,540 Hanwha Q-Cell 290 panels, 26 Solectria string inverters, generates approximately 1.6 million kW’s of power, and offsets 90% of our total annual energy load. The project was built by Barrier Solar Power Systems.
