Solar Projects to be Celebrated in Tulare County

A portfolio of five new solar projects large enough to power 5,809 homes will be celebrated this week.

ImMODO Energy Services, one of the largest solar project developers in the San Joaquin Valley, is celebrating the commissioning of its first portfolio of projects in Tulare County at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Kingsburg Solar Park, located at 1522 Ave. 392 in Kingsburg. ImMODO Energy Services representatives will be joined by Tulare County 4th District Supervisor Steve Worthley, Economic Development Manager Michael Washam, and others for the ribbon cutting. 

The portfolio of five projects will produce 22 megawatts (MW) of clean renewable energy in Tulare County, enough to provide power to 5,809 homes. These projects result in a reduction in greenhouse gases that is equivalent to taking 8,084 car of the road.  All five project sites are roughly twenty acres in size and distributed throughout Tulare County near the communities of Kingsburg, Ivanhoe, Exeter, Lindsay and Tulare. The estimated construction value of ImMODO projects permitted in 2013 ranks higher than all other commercial developments in the Central San Joaquin Valley.

The portfolio represents five of the nine projects slated for Tulare County; the investment is roughly $40 million of ImMODO’s total investment of more than $65 million.  One of ImMODO's defining qualities is its commitment to hiring local which is achieved with many partners in Tulare County, most notably the nonprofit training organization, Proteus, Inc., whose staff will discuss its goal of training a local workforce in the energy sector.

This event will celebrate the partnership between Tulare County and ImMODO Energy Services as well as the future of ImMODO Solar and its growing relationship within the agriculture industry.
