Labor costs, access to water, weather and market conditions all vary every year. Solar energy can offset a significant portion of overall operating costs and create greater business predictability. With the agriculture sector’s incentives and access to cheap financing, solar is a solid business decision with a rapid payback.

Active in Supporting Agriculture
We are active members of many farm organizations and like to support our customers’ businesses any way we can. That might include helping you get press coverage for your renewable energy investments, or supporting causes you care about.
A Trusted, Long-Term Partner
REC Solar was founded in 1997 and is focused exclusively on solar for businesses. When considering who to partner with, we think you should choose someone dedicated to commercial-scale solar solutions – not a roofer, not an electrician, not a residential solar company.
Everything Under One Roof
Some providers have limited support for financing and no ability to maintain the system after installation. We do everything in house and have an experienced team to make the solar experience easy for you.
