The solar system has been constructed in the almond processing factory of Hughson Nut, which processes almonds for the bakery, cereal, confectionary, snack and health food sectors.
More than 970,000 kWh of clean energy per year will be generated from the solar system and will be used for slicing, dicing, silvering and milling, dry roasting and blanching of almonds. The clean energy produced is equal to growing a pine forest in 140 ac or eliminating almost 730 t of CO2.
Cenergy Power will operate and maintain the solar systems for 10 years as part of the solar arrangement which includes repair, cleaning of touch-free panels and preventive maintenance.
Martin Pohl, Principal of Hughson Nut, informed that over a year ago, Cenergy Power had already done a solar project with a 504 kW capacity for nut hulling trade. Hence, Hughson Nut knew that Cenergy Power will capably execute the second project as well. Hughson Nut was able to meet its double objectives, including reduction of energy expenses and environmental sustainability, through the support of Cenergy Power. Such sustainable measures are advantageous for Hughson Nut’s partners and growers.
