Agricultural Solar Panels for Farmers & Ranchers in Des Moines, IA

If you are looking for a way to reduce the overhead costs of your business as well as to get electric power to farms and other remote areas, one of the best options is to agricultural solar panels. Solar is a reliable way to power irrigation systems, keep water from freezing for animals, and offset the cost of farming by producing energy.

A growing number of farms and agricultural businesses are looking to solar to power their daily operations. Thanks in part to the Solar Energy Technologies Office's investments, the cost of going solar has declined, enabling more installations across the country.

Uses for Solar on Farms & Ranches

  • Powering Irrigation Systems - Solar can offset power required for pumping and provide power to remote irrigation systems, requiring no grid connection. This has already been tested and is being used in Africa, India, and South America.
  • Between or among crops - Many farmers have discovered that you can spread out panels so that you can plant crops between solar panels.  Normally there is a 3-10% loss of space, but it has no negative effects on crops if the right options are implemented.
  • Powering coops and barns - The harsh winters of Iowa can cause problems for ranchers when temperatures drop below freezing for long periods of time.  Solar power can allow you to heat the barns as well as ensure water continues to flow since pipes won't freeze.  Warmer temperatures also can increase egg yield which can also increase profits.
