Agriculture has long benefited from solar energy; and solar generation technology is taking that relationship to the next level. Farm owners are installing solar electric arrays atop existing farm structures and optimizing new building projects for maximum solar electric output. Already have a FIT system?

In 2018, a client approached us with the vision of revitalizing the historic family farm in Fenelon Falls. With an eye to environmental stewardship, the revitalization would include deep electrification and incorporate renewable energy solar and geothermal assets. Given our commitment to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction, Generation Solar was selected to design and build the required solar energy system.
Hoping to take advantage of recent improvements in PV technology, our client approached us to see if renewable energy could generate a secondary income for his organic poultry farm or possibly reduce and stabilize the energy costs of his expanding business. Our answer was an enthusiastic yes….and yes.
