Solar is Part of the Jackson Family Legacy
Those who live in the central valley of California have likely consumed a product grown by the Jackson Family. With six featured brands that represent the generations of Jackson families running the farm, it’d be hard not to.
From the day Herschel Jackson established his farm in the San Joaquin Valley, California, the Jackson family has gained new varieties of fruits, land, and, throughout subsequent generations, solar energy with the help of Premier Renewables. The Jacksons have now been growing fruit in Kingsburg, California for five generations and since the days of Herschel Jackson, have become the largest grower, shipper, and packer of stone fruit in San Joaquin Valley.
Premier was first approached by the Jackson family to build a 1.1 MW DC single axis ground tracker in 2010. Over the years, Premier has completed numerous solar projects for the Jackson family’s facilities with the most recent solar addition being a roof solar mount for Cornerstone, their packing and cooling facility.
To this date, Premier has completed seven solar projects for the Jackson family. In total, the Jackson family land is home to approximately 23,000 solar panels. Once the current roof mount project is completed for Cornerstone, they’ll have enough combined solar energy to power the equivalent of over 800 homes. Solar will be an integral part of the Jackson Farms operation far into the future, reducing their production costs significantly and helping them reduce their carbon footprint. We believe in legacy and are committed to helping you build yours.
