Saving Millions with SunPower®

Wildly popular for its health benefits and great taste, almonds are now used in everything from cereals to snack foods, and are California’s most valuable agricultural commodity. Yet almond yields have declined over the past few years in part due to California’s raging drought.1 

When the drought caused yields to decline, GES knew they needed to cut costs. With the company’s cost of power increasing an average of five percent per year, Wynn recognized the need to drastically reduce the company’s electric bill, so he looked to SunPower for the solution.
