Solar Powered Farming
The Arkansas Delta is an Ideal Location for Harnessing Solar Energy
Just like every business, farms are looking for ways in which to reduce their energy costs. For those who are striving to expand operations and continue on a path of growth, saving on operating expenses can play a major role in making significant progress. One of today’s best options for farmers in Arkansas looking to move in the direction of green energy is solar power.
It’s often assumed that solar power is primarily for residential purposes, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are countless commercial opportunities for solar, and agriculture is a perfect example.
Want to see what solar can do for your farm?
Let’s work together to start saving you money.
When you take a moment to break down the amount of energy actually necessary for handling day to day operations on a farm, it starts to make sense why monthly bills can be so high. Between lighting, machinery & equipment, storage, water/irrigation systems and more, electricity is constantly flowing through even the most humble of farms and is especially crucial in larger operations.
While most farms operate off of traditional electricity from the grid, there’s ample opportunity to make the switch to solar, which is capable of powering all of these facets of the operation and more. The benefits of installing solar panels in an agricultural setting are immense, including the following:
Reduced Monthly Energy Bills
For each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of power produced via solar energy, one less kWh needs to be purchased from the electric company. The end result? More money staying on the farm, where it belongs.
There’s no getting around the fact that energy prices are on the rise. Solar provides farmers with insurance against rising energy costs, providing reliable energy without fears of having to spend more money down the road.
Increased Property Value
Grants, tax incentives and a depreciation schedule of five years makes solar energy one of the best long-term investments a farm can make. It adds value to the property, securing a bright future for you and your employees.
Solar energy is completely passive, producing power as long as the sun is shining. Not only does this save you money in the process, but you can actually earn additional income by selling surplus power back to the grid!
Since solar energy can be so seamlessly integrated into existing structures and systems, there’s no need to worry about the potential for disruption. This allows you to start seeing the benefits quickly, without having to endure a lengthy installation process.
