“ Solar Every Day Keeps the Bills Away ”
Many apple orchards not only grow their produce, they also store and pack their yields. To do so successfully, they must remain vigilant about
✔ humidity levels in their storage facilities.
✔ temperatures that accommodate freshly picked apples.
✔ oxygen levels appropriate for post-harvest apple storage.
✔ efficient use of equipment at their packing and storage facilities.
These kinds of controlled atmosphere (CA) storage practices necessarily require high electric use, and can lead to prohibitive annual operating costs for orchards of all sizes.
At Ecojiva, we can customize a solution for your facility that will:
✔ reduce your electric bill
✔ stabilize your electric rate
✔ shrink your carbon footprint
✔ combat the rising cost of electricity
✔ help you become a more competitive agricultural producer
Jim’s 150kW Roof-Mount System
Jim is one of the three owners of a large apple orchard, packing facility, and supplier in southeast Michigan. A 150kW solar energy system replaces approximately 42% of the business’ annual electric usage, and saves the orchard over $25,000 a year. So, the decision to go solar was an easy one for Jim and Scott.
In addition, for eligible apple farms, we may also be able to integrate our cutting-edge ecoDMT™ demand management technology.
This technology intelligently optimizes your solar generation, increases your solar energy savings by up to an additional 50%, and maximizes energy efficiency at your site.
