Updated: Oct 29, 2021
Long-time Polaris partner for deploying and maintaining agricultural monitoring and control systems signed on to work with Gridtractor to electrify ag in California. Jason Martin, Cal-West's VP Sales said "As a company that deploys, maintains and repairs hundreds of irrigation pumps and systems every year, we are very familiar with how power is delivered, controlled and used in the Ag environment. We see the tremendous opportunity of thousands of tractors connecting to the grid and the technical challenges, and we want to be a part of it. We are excited to tackle those challenges with the Gridtractor team and their technology." Cal-West will work with Gridtractor to develop integrations with the wide array of electrical infrastructure found on farms. David Meyers, Gridtractor's CEO, noted "as large as the opportunity is--to save on or eliminate fuel bills and make the grid cleaner and more reliable--each electrical service and supply point is a little different and we need a partner that can customize the solution in the field for each customer. Cal-West is up to the challenge!
