Solar farming is the sustainable harvesting of kilowatts (or megawatts, as the case may be) of sunshine, using modern technology to capture and convert the sun’s rays into electricity. Farming solar energy diversifies your production and adds a new crop to your land’s portfolio. Unlike farming corn or hay, or grazing cattle, solar does not deplete the soil or require irrigation. You’ll be harvesting a renewable resource that promises a stable and long-term source of revenue for your family—one that doesn’t fluctuate with global commodity markets, or vary based upon weather events from year to year.
As a landowner, farming solar is one of the easiest crops you’ll ever have on your land. You’re not responsible for any costs associated with the farm during the life of the lease. And you won’t need to worry about maintaining or irrigating the site.
When a solar farm has reached the end of its useful life, we remove the panels and other equipment, leaving behind rested soil that can immediately be returned to its previous use.
At OneEnergy, we respect the rich tradition of farming in our country and recognize that farmland is often part of a family’s proud heritage. We are committed to the responsible and successful stewardship of your family’s legacy. Solar farming offers the potential to keep to keep your land intact, your soil healthy, and preserve your farmstead for generations to come.
