Agricultural Solar

On-Site Solar Energy to Power Your Facility

Invest in Solar Energy Generation for Your Agricultural Facility

Solar panels can generate enough electricity to power your entire agricultural facility. This can save you a significant amount of money on your electricity bills each month. A study by the Solar Energy Industries Association found that the average commercial solar system saves businesses 20% on their electricity bills.

Improve Property Values

Solar panels are an asset that can increase the value of your agricultural facility. This is because solar panels are a sustainable and renewable source of energy. A study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that solar panels increase the value of homes by an average of $20,000.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Solar panels generate electricity without producing any harmful emissions. This helps to reduce your carbon footprint and improve the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that solar panels reduce carbon emissions by 900,000 metric tons per year.

kreamer feed
Kreamer Feed Inc., located in Kreamer, PA, is a local, family-owned agricultural feed brand established in 1947 that offers organic, non-medicated, Non-GMO Project Verified products in bagged and bulk quantities. As a company that takes pride in offering a line of organic products, the idea of operating more sustainably with clean, reliable solar power was appealing. Kreamer Feed selected SunPower by esaSolar to design and install 526kW of SunPower solar to reduce the increasing electricity costs associated with running its on-site mill and warehousing operations.

The rooftop and ground solar arrays are expected to save an estimated $3.5 million on electricity costs over time. The 1,333 solar panels will meet 60% of the company’s annual electricity needs, allowing Kreamer to recoup its system costs in less than six years.

The project also allowed the company to take advantage of the Federal Investment Tax Credit, which allows eligible businesses to go solar and apply 26% of the cost of the system as a tax credit. The 26% commercial ITC will be available through 2022 and is scheduled to be reduced in 2020.
