USA: Conergy power plant cracks Californian almonds with solar power
Hamburg | Arbuckle, California: Conergy is further strengthening its position in the growing solar market of the USA. The system supplier is constructing a 725 kilowatt solar plant for the almond producer T & P Farms in Northern California. The almonds won’t only grow under the Californian sun, but will also be “cracked” and processed using its energy. The environmentally-friendly solar power installed at the facility will enable T & P Farms to cover as much as 95% of the energy required for its shelling operations and to save thousands of dollars in energy costs. Conergy is acting as general contractor on this project, taking responsibility for all the steps involved from planning to engineering and construction of the plant to the supply of the components. On completion of the installation, Conergy will also take on the maintenance and further operational management of the plant.
 
The solar experts are installing more than 3,000 Conergy PM modules and more than 3 miles of Conergy SunTop mounting systems at two locations on the farm’s premises – on the south face of the hull storage barn and on top of a purpose-built solar structure, in which farm appliances and machines are stored. There, the modules will generate over 1.1 million kilowatt hours of clean and low-cost solar power for the almond farm every year. And the environment will benefit as well, because besides the innumerable trees of the huge almond plantation, which absorb tonnes of CO2 every year, the solar plant will now also prevent over 890 tonnes of the damaging greenhouse gas from being produced – roughly as much as about 89 hectares of forest can absorb over the same period.
 
“Sustainability plays an important role for us – both in the production process and in the business in general,” said Sarah Reynolds, Project Manager at T & P Farms. “With our self-generated, green electricity we are taking an important step, which will pay off for our company both ecologically and economically. Conergy is supporting us on the project as an experienced and competent partner, from construction all the way to monitoring the plant in operation. We feel confident that our power plant will operate reliably for many years to come.”
 
Anthony Fotopoulos, President of Conergy North America, adds: “We are very happy to assist T & P Farms realize their sustainability goals through this project. Acting as a trailblazer in their sector, they are providing an excellent example of how you can use solar energy to combine environmental protection with cost-efficiency in business, and we hope that many other companies will follow their lead. Thanks to our many years of experience and our expertise in the agricultural sector, we continue to demonstrate our ability to offer the right solar solutions and appropriate service.”
