Solar photovoltaic energy for agricultural operations - Farm Energy

Jay Harmon, Mark Hanna, Thomas G. Miller

A combination of new technology, significantly increased production of arrays, and tax incentives have cut the installed cost of solar generation by more than 50 percent in the past several years and greatly changed the economics for those interested in solar. A primary motivating factor for solar installation is to offset electrical consumption and hedge against future costs, but an important secondary factor for some is a desire to "go green", by reducing their fossil fuel consumption.
