Agriculture Solar Power
Harvesting the Sun for Generations to Come!
According to the Northwest Dairy Association, the number of American farms that added renewable energy doubled within only five years to total over 133,000. The total of farms with renewable energy systems accounts for about 6.5 percent of all American farms, and that figure has almost tripled since 2012. With improved tech and incentive programs, expect to see that number keep increasing in the next few years.
Here at Morton Solar, we've been helping farms, businesses, and residents in the Midwest harvest clean and renewable electricity from the sun since 2006. Our partnerships with nurseries, farms, and other agricultural businesses have helped them reduce and manage electricity costs while preserving the natural environment that we all rely on.
Take a look at our gallery of agricultural solar power projects at some of your neighbor's farms in Evansville, Indiana, Providence, Kentucky, Crossvile, Illinois, and many more.
WHY AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES AND MORTON SOLAR SHOULD WORK TOGETHER
Government studies have shown what agricultural businesses already knew. Power bills consume a large portion of operating expenses. In fact, one study estimated that the agricultural industry in the United States uses as much power as the entire state of Utah. Besides the expense, the unpredictability of future bills makes electricity a tough cost to manage.
Here at Morton Solar, we can help our customers generate their own clean, renewable power. Take a look at some examples of the agricultural solar power projects we have already completed. If we work on a large or small project, from one dairy barn to an industrial farming complex, we have helped reduce energy costs and contributed to a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

WE HELP AGRICULTURE TRANSITION TO RENEWABLE, CLEAN SOLAR POWER
Solar power can reduce or eliminate energy bills. Sometimes, installation owners can even earn credits for energy overproduction. At the same time, a solar power installation obviously requires an investment. However, here at Morton Solar, we even help our customers with funding by providing assistance with writing USDA grants, qualifying for tax credits and deductions, and finding other financing.
As just one example, the REAP Act provides grants to help improve the energy efficiency of agricultural producers and other small rural businesses. These funds can help pay for renewable energy systems and energy-efficient improvements.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will my electric bill look like after the installation?
This depends on your budget and preference. Every system produces a different amount of energy, depending upon size and location. We can design a system that will generate enough electricity to power your entire facility, which is called “net-zero.” This means each month your electric bill would only consist of the small fee they charge for their meters.
What is the installation process like? How long will it take?
Each installation is different and requires time and material specific to that project. Once paperwork and engineering are completed, installation is typically the shortest part of the process.
What solar rebates or incentives are currently available for businesses?
There are a number of tax credits and incentives available for businesses switching to solar. For instance, commercial solar is eligible for a 22% tax credit IN 2021 and 21% tax depreciation. To learn more about what is available and what you may qualify for, contact us.
