Audio Access requires purchase or a conference code provided. Please visit the conference recordings page for more details.
Farmers use solar energy to produce food and fiber. Now with solar arrays it is possible to add renewable electricity to your farm's production. A solar array will pay for itself, generate profit over time, and allow you to have control over your energy costs. This workshop will cover the basics of solar technology, the economics of solar, grants and incentives available to go solar, and soliciting and reviewing bids from solar installers. Minnesota dairy grazier Art Thicke will share his experience with going solar and expanding his solar array over time.
