The yield from harvesting solar is guaranteed. Farmers can reduce utility expenses and produce energy on their own terms

 

Reduce risk

Farmers face fluctuations in market prices and risks related to crop performance. This volatility creates unpredictable revenue and hurts farmers' livelihood.

Consistent and predictable yields from solar combined with the low expense and low maintenance requirements of a system make solar the most reliable resource a farm can harvest.

Reinvest in your farm

 

 

The difference in cost between paying traditional utilities and harvesting your own solar energy is real. By year 15, farms utilizing solar energy could pay 30% of their traditional utility expense. By year 30, that cost shrinks to 12%.
