How can going solar help your farm?

Farms going solar will make a huge difference in electricity costs due to it being free source of power. But its not just reducing your monthly bills, your also reducing carbon emissions and your dependency on the electricity grid.  Crops planted under the shade of solar modules benefit from lower soil temperature during the day and warmer soil at night. You wouldn’t need as much water to irrigate certain crops as a result. Elevated solar modules can provide shade for various livestock. And unused roof space on barns or other structures can be put to work generating free power to drive irrigation pumps and other equipment.

chicken houses and dairy farm buildings all need a lot of energy to function. They also provide excellent opportunities for agricultural solar panels to help reduce electricity costs. Matching the daytime generation from the panels to the electricity demand within the building is the most efficient way to use solar energy as it means that the business needs to import less energy from the grid which costs up to three times as much as solar.

Quote from a farmer that has recently got a PV installation, “We are both saving and making money. Anyone who has significant daytime energy use will make solar pay”

Solar offers more than just saving money
