Solar Energy makes your farm profitable Energy and Electricity prices are increasing every year, and smart farmers are looking for ways to reduce their energy use and cut costs. There are many ways to save energy. But a properly designed solar system will allow you to maximise the benefits.
– It’s as simple as that!
Solar energy is less expensive than it has been in history. Eskom and local Municipalities also have attractive feed-in schemes that pay for any electricity that a farming operation exports to the grid, so payback is usually around 5 years. Unlike other farm equipment, PV and solar heating systems are hassle-free and last for over 25 years with little maintenance.
Solar PV on your farm is an excellent investment. It quickly pays for itself, improves your independence from the grid, and increases the value of your property.
