Sunworks (NASDAQ:SUNW) has announced a new project for a 1.9 megawatt solar system that will be constructed in Merced, California.
As quoted in the press release:

The system will allow the dairy farm to offset an estimated 90% of their annual electrical needs. Meirinho Dairy is a prominent, family owned farm that provides a diverse range of operations including dairy, dairy feed, and almond farming.
Family owned dairy operations in California provide 20.5% of all milk consumed in the United States (over 41,000 pounds). Reducing overhead is a key component to seamless production and stable profitability for dairy operations and energy needs for fueling the equipment used in dairies are unpredictable and prone to rapid increase. As a result of their continuing effort toward sustainable farming, Meirinho Dairy identifies solar power as a natural way to augment their operations, reduce energy costs, and promote environmental initiatives.
Both Sunworks and Meirinho Dairy have established a comprehensive, long term commitment towards sustainable agriculture. Sunworks will incorporate its RapidRack system to install the 1.9 MW, fixed ground mount solar array consisting of 5,670 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. The system will enable Meirinho Dairy to efficiently increase solar collection while reducing the need to occupy crucial farming space. The Rapid Rack system will accommodate 3 PV panels per column and decrease the coverage area required from 8 to 5.64 acres. The result is a savings of over 2 acres of viable farm land for use in other areas of Meirinho Dairy’s core business. Along the entire area of the Rapid Rack system, Sunworks will deploy weed barrier and gravel for added equipment protection. Additionally, a full fence with live video camera system will be integrated for added security.
