BENEFITS OF AGRICULTURAL SOLAR
solar and agriculture are a natural fit
Renewable energy and farming are a winning combination. Agriculture is a sector, which can hugely benefit due to the adoption of solar energy. Agricultural solar can be used in a number of ways that include saving money, increasing self-reliance and reducing pollution. The number of solar applications used to enhance agriculture and farming are endless: solar heat can be used to warm homes, livestock buildings and greenhouses. Installing solar water heaters can cost-effectively and efficiently provide warm water for dairy operations, pen cleaning and home use. Solar panels are able to power farm operations and remote water pumps, lights, and even electric fences, fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between farming and the sun. This application could also offer farmers the ability to grow shade-tolerant crops and to diversify crop selection, while also extending growing seasons and shrinking water requirements.
THE OPTIONS FOR SOLAR AND AGRICULTURE ARE ENDLESS. IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN POWER IT WITH THE SUN.
Eco-Friendly farms have marketing advantages
Marketing opportunities to sustainability-mindful audiences are made available when conducting as a ‘green farm’. By striving to protect the environment through green operations, you become a bastion of positive conservation within Alberta’s farming community. Taking traditional methods of agriculture and combining them with modern, renewable, ecological-aware practices and technology, will set you apart as a leader in earth-friendly farming. As land shifts to younger owners, with ‘greener’ priorities, environmentally conscious production is simply a smart marketing move.
LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE THAT COMES FROM A GREEN FARM IS GOOD FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND OUR ENVIRONMENT.
lower your farm’s electricity bills
Undependable quantities of electricity is one of the top concerns for many agriculture practitioners, many having experienced serious loses. With the availability of net metering in solar, it is now easier and more affordable for farms to generate the power they need from renewable resources. For homes or farms with electric or propane water heaters, solar collectors can save hundreds of dollars per year. Solar projects provide an increased, diversified and reliable source of income for landowners. Thus proving cheaper electricity and effective hedging against variability in annual farm income and fluctuating energy prices.
