As the nation strives to meet its growing energy demands, we must look at all resources. The sun provides an abundant source of energy.

It's as simple as catching the sun's rays, with a little help from technology. Our video below will help you understand how it works and safely operates.

Clean Energy

The Potential of Solar

Zero-Emitting Energy Generation

Solar power is clean. Producing electricity with solar panels generates zero emissions, protecting the air we breathe and the water we drink from harmful emissions and pollution. Solar energy can also replace dirtier fossil fuels to reduce overall emissions from energy generation and mitigate impacts to the climate.

The Cheapest Way to Produce New Electricity

Solar is cost effective because the cost of the fuel source (the sun) is free. As the price of solar panels has gone down, the cost of solar electricity has significantly decreased. In fact, solar energy is currently the lowest cost way to produce electricity, nearly half the cost of natural gas.

Our Project Benefits

Ag Landowners Benefit from Solar Farm Leases

Landowners receive lease payments over the life of the project, estimated at more than 35 years.. This steady income helps avoid the fluctuations of the market and weather impacts and can be a lifeline for local farmers by helping them keep the remainder of their land in production.

Enhances and Protects the Natural Environment

While the facility is in operation, we plant ground cover to attract natural, local pollinators, which helps the surrounding environment and farms. Our facilities use nonchemical weed management where possible including sheep grazing.
