Solar Water Pumping Project for Tree Farm

WorldWater & Power Corporation, which specializes in the solar-powered water pumping niche of the renewable energy industry, secured $1.8 million contract to supply solar-generated electricity for a tree farm in California. The company’s proprietary solar AquaMax PV system will drive a 200 horsepower (HP) water pump saving an estimated 70 percent of the Cocopah tree farm’s electrical bills, according to the company. The company recently completed a similar 200 HP project for Seley Ranches, a citrus farm in California and completed their largest project to date, a 1 MW solar installation at Cerro Coso College in Ridgecrest, CA, which the college estimates will supply 60 percent of its electricity and save the college over $300,000 a year.
