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. ImMODO Energy Services
representatives will be joined by Tulare County 4th District Supervisor
Steve Worthley, Economic Development Manager Michael Washam, and others
for a ribbon cutting ceremony Feb 26 at their Kingsburg solar park near Hwy 99.
The portfolio 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
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.
