Solar Solutions To
Grow Sustainable Profits
Break free from rising utility costs with a solar farm on your land
Solar Made Simple for Agriculture
Energy costs are rising every day. For growers and processors in the agriculture industry, markets are unpredictable and margins can be tight. You need to get a handle on it all with predictable electricity costs, and a sustainable energy resource you can generate onsite: solar.
CalCom specializes in solar solutions for farms and agribusinesses. We partner with you to design energy strategies that save, on average, $50,000 per acre compared with crop yields. Working together, we power a more sustainable and resilient food supply.
We evaluate your operation's energy use and current utility charges to assess your total potential solar savings.
Design & Installation
We design and build a solar energy system that gives you a lower and more predictable energy cost for years to come.
We give you options to pay for your solar system over time and help you take advantage of available incentives.
We proactively monitor your system’s performance and manage your operations and maintenance.

One Solar Solution Does Not Fit All Agribusinesses
CalCom has been working with customers in the agriculture industry since 2012 to build solar energy systems that electrify irrigation pumps and provide clean power for crop processing, cold-storage, machinery and all the electrical operations that drive your agribusiness.
Overbuilding or under-building solar capacity by just 5% can cost thousands of dollars over solar’s lifetime. Our expertise in understanding your specific market requirements allow us to precisely right-size your solar energy installation and deliver the best ROI possible.
Whether you’re growing fruits, vegetables, nuts, cotton or any other crop, solar can help defray your utility costs. An excellent hedge against inflation, solar can help growers offset the high costs of irrigation and other operational costs.
Processing crops requires a lot of energy, and seasonal demand spikes can cause your utility bill to surge unexpectedly. A solar + storage solution keeps costs stable so you can focus on the harvest.
DAIRIES & RANCHES
Dairies and ranches have unique needs when it comes to energy. Dairies use solar to offset the costs of constant electrification for milking machines, HVAC and refrigeration. Ranches appreciate the ability to turn underutilized land into a cost-saving solar array.
Distributing food requires logistics management and optimal cold storage every step of the way. In addition, trucking fleets are rapidly moving to electrification. Solar can help reduce operational costs on both fronts.
