FREMONT, Calif. and VISALIA, Calif., March 9, 2015 /​PRNewswire/​ — Cal­Com Solar, a leader in solar project design and con­struc­tion for Cal­i­for­nia Agribusi­nesses and Water Dis­tricts, has entered into a 100 MW sup­ply agree­ment with NEX­Tracker to serve its agribusi­ness customers.

CalCom’s prin­ci­pals have over 35 years of solar expe­ri­ence and to date have over­seen the con­struc­tion of over 50 MW of track­ers,” said Nic Stover, CEO of Cal­Com. “NEX­Tracker tech­nol­ogy is the great­est proven advance­ment to emerge in the indus­try. With CalCom’s focus on help­ing agri­cul­tural cus­tomers use solar to save on energy costs, NEX­Tracker is a great offer­ing to lower costs and increase energy pro­duc­tion. They’ve assem­bled the ‘dream team’ of the PV rack­ing busi­ness; they’re very sup­port­ive of our needs. We’re excited to be deploy­ing NEX­Tracker for vision­ary agribusi­nesses lead­ers like Woolf Farm­ing and Processing.”

We are very appre­cia­tive to be part­ner­ing with Cal­Com Solar and their cus­tomers,” noted NEX­Tracker CEO Dan Shugar. “The agri­cul­tural sec­tor is well served by solar – and Cal­Com deliv­ers excep­tional exper­tise in design­ing, engi­neer­ing, and con­struct­ing solar power sys­tems for agri­cul­tural oper­a­tions. With unim­peded rows and easy con­struc­tion, NEX­Tracker offers max­i­mum reli­a­bil­ity, per­for­mance and prof­itabil­ity. Together, Cal­Com and NEX­Tracker are deliv­er­ing solar sys­tems that gen­er­ate more energy at lower cost, help­ing lead­ing grow­ers like Woolf Farm­ing to lower their oper­at­ing costs with clean solar power.”

Woolf Farm­ing and Pro­cess­ing has a multi-​​generational legacy of pro­duc­ing more with less while improv­ing the land,” said Stu­art Woolf, Pres­i­dent of Woolf Farm­ing. “Solar is a per­fect fit for our vision of sus­tain­able farm­ing, and Cal­Com Solar and NEX­Tracker are the best choices for our needs. We are excited to be work­ing together with these great com­pa­nies to use the power of the sun to not only grow food but pro­vide the energy to process it for our customers.”
