Shafter-Wasco Almond Hulling

Shafter-Wasco Almond Hulling is responsible for first point processing of almonds directly from the farmer, which involves hulling and shelling using heavy machinery. The hulling and shelling equipment is state-of-the-art and requires an immense amount of electrical power in the post-harvest season, costing the business over $260,000 each year. The megawatt ground-mounted solar PV system installed by Photon Brothers in early 2017, now produces 81% of the company’s electrical needs resulting in annual savings of over $210,000.
