Farm goes Solar
Our vegetable farm uses quite a bit of electricity in the process of growing food products. Cooling fans, grow lights and water pumps all contribute to the power bill. This year, we have completed installation of a 28kilowatt system which will hopefully bring our average monthly bills down to about $10 (mostly taxes). One big renewable resource in the Arizona desert is the sun.
