Agriculture & Farm Installation Services
A solar array on your farm can reduce operating expenses and provide a defense against future electric rate inflation. Farmers, in the TVA area, can reduce or completely eliminate electric expenditures through TVA’s incentive program while maintaining a good return on investment. Other solar incentives include a 30% Federal Tax Credit, MACRS Accelerated Depreciation and the REAP program.
In addition, a solar array raises property value while offsetting utility costs. Solar can differentiate your farm by offering a green energy solution to the growing environmental effects of fossil fuels. A solar system of 50 kW will offset CO2 emissions by 3,800,000 lbs over 25 years, the equivalent to planting 870 acres of trees! Positive public relations along with monetary incentives make solar a great investment for any farm.
Solar panels are virtually maintenance-free since they have no moving parts and due to the fact that solar cells never really expire. According to Solar-Panel-Options.com, the functional lifetime of a solar panel is over 30 years. They’re not actually sure how long panels tend to last because mankind hasn’t been manufacturing them long enough to find out. Because panels were designed to be placed on your roof, their durable construction makes it so nature’s elements (like hail, snow or rain) cannot harm them, except under the most extreme weather conditions.

Which is Right for You or Your Business?
Rooftop solar arrays are one of the more popular options for home owners because residential roofs usually have enough space and are well-suited for maximum energy production. Your roof should be unshaded and ideally facing toward SSE and SSW for best results.
Canopy installations are by far our most popular installation for both residential and agricultural applications. Because the canopy is above ground, vehicles can park under it, yard or farm equipment can be stored under it, etc.
Ground-Mount solar panel installation works well for someone who has unshaded land or field. This makes it a great option for agricultural applications.
A Building Integrated Installation is a great choice for a commercial installation. Because it is installed in a way that works with the design and architecture of your facility, it's a great option for a business or government facility that doesn't have a lot land.
