Solar for your Farm

A New Crop


Is solar right for your farm operation?

  1. If you have flat or southern-facing roof areas or open land free from shade then you could have a suitable site for solar PV.
  2. You can cover as little or as much of your electricity use as you like, and we can help you understand how to size a system to fit your needs and budget.
  3. Funding, financing, and incentives at the local, state, and federal levels combined with reduced equipment costs are helping farms and businesses install more solar now than ever before.
