Power For A New Kind Of Farm

Premium Tier 1 Panasonic™ Panels for Farms In Iowa

A growing number of farms and agricultural businesses in Iowa are investing in solar. 

It’s easy to see why; with the ever-increasing costs of traditional power sources, solar panels provide business owners with a way to lock in highly affordable energy costs for decades, thereby increasing their bottom lines.  What’s more, it’s becoming increasingly common for retailers to want more sustainable supply chains.  So, having solar panels installed can better position agricultural businesses for the future.

At ECG Solar™, we understand that going solar is a significant investment for any business, and we go the extra mile to ensure our clients receive maximum value.  We install Tier-1 solar panels for farms that are engineered to outperform others on the market.  Sourced from the industry’s most trusted manufacturers, including Panasonic™, our solar panels:

  • Provide industry-leading energy production, maximizing return on investment.
  • Are available in ground- and roof-mounted applications to suit your property.
  • Are safe in terms of voltage and being rapid shutdown compliant.
  • Come backed with a 25-year, all-inclusive warranty.
Why Should Farms Invest In Solar Energy?

Co-Locating Solar and Crop Production

Studies from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have demonstrated a marked benefit conferred between crops and solar panel placement, including better and more high-quality yields.  This means solar panel installation provide multiple benefits, rather than one. 

Excess Energy Sale

Solar panel arrays will often produce more energy than the structures they’re designed for can use, the byproduct of which their owners can sell back to the commercial power grid or local energy cooperatives for a substantial profit.  This effectively turns a regular farm into a dual-purpose solar farm.

Greener Agriculture, Better Business

A 2017 CSR study found that “87% of Americans will purchase a product because a company advocated for an issue they cared about…”.  Farmers who convert to solar may actually see more business from these markets than ones who don’t.

How Does Solar Power Work On Farms?

Solar Panel Location

In order to construct the most effective and efficient solar array possible, both the solar installer and the landowner will need to discuss and evaluate what part of the property is most ideal for solar panel installation.

Farm Power Supply

When the whole solar energy system is set up, you’ll have your very own independent power source that could run anything from milking equipment and grain dryers to the lights and fans in your bedroom.

Net Metering

If you have any extra power that your farm isn’t able to use, you’ll be able to send it to the commercial power grid, in which they credit you at full retail rate or avoided cost, a practice known as “net metering.”

Inverter Install

An inverter will need to be installed in order to convert the DC electricity from the solar panels to AC power for the farm to use.  

Battery Install

Battery systems are not required, but depending on the utility provider, TOU rates and consumption behavior, a battery could be used to not only save more money but also provide a micro-grid to power the farm during an outage. These can also work in parallel with a smaller standby generator.
