2019 Deadline Approaching! Energy costs for the agriculture industry keep rising and more companies are turning to solar energy to reduce those expenses. For companies that choose solar, the payback can be in as few as 3 years. Some companies choose to pay cash or use loans through their local bank or Farm Credit to finance their project.
How much your business saves over the 25 to 30 year lifetime of a typical commercial solar system depends on many factors, including how you finance it, federal and local incentives, your utility rate, and the amount of sunshine available on your commercial rooftop.
