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.”
