The 1 MW of combined Solar PV Carport and Roof mount systems are now up and running and add a vital component to Chino Valley Ranchers’ distributed generation strategy. The addition of renewable technology demonstrates Chino Valley Ranchers’ dedication to clean energy and sustainable practices. Chris Nichols, Senior VP, noted that “Regatta has earned our trust! The project execution was smooth, with little to no disruption to our operation. We consider Regatta & Agave® valued team members we depend on.”
Chino Valley Farms first engaged Regatta to design and deploy three cogeneration systems throughout their facility three years ago. The system generates roughly 1 MW of electric production. These systems provide hot water for sanitation applications to enable their egg processing business. These systems are controlled by the Agave® Microgrid Controller that optimizes generation dispatch and delivers lights out control. Agave® Analytics provides measurement, verification, and financial reporting. The result is a system that generates 5.5GWh for 100% of their energy consumption and makes the site Net-Zero. The microgrid project provides quick ROIs and saves Chino Valley Ranchers over $650,000 per year.
It’s a joy to work with innovative clients that blend distributed generation technology to drive high resiliency, demonstrate sustainability, and spend smart to optimize their bottom-line, says Steven Acevedo, CEO and Founder of Regatta Solutions and Agave®.
