Alta Energy Installs Solar System at Merill Farms

Alta Energy will install 1.6-MW of solar power at Merill Farms, a Salinas, Californai vegetable and berry grower.

The solar projects will produce 80 percent of the electricity consumption on two growing sites and eliminate 505 metric tons of carbon emissions each year.

“When I sat down with the Alta Energy team, they analyzed 13 of our growing operations and facilities, went through their financial analysis of our solar potential and identified the optimal sites,” said Ross Merrill, CEO of Merill Farms. “Alta Energy cut through the complexity of all the variables in a solar project, showed us various trade-offs and options, explained ways to complete the projects efficiently and profitably, and expedited the deployment process.”
