Agricultural Solar Electric Investment Analysis Webinar (Part 1 of 6)

Photovoltaic panels are an increasingly common sight on urban rooftops and rural properties across the U.S. The declining cost of equipment and installation makes installing a behind-the-electric-meter (net metered) solar electric system enticing for many farmers. Evaluating the financial prudence of an investment in solar requires careful consideration of installation costs, the value of production, and operation and maintenance costs. This six part webinar series will provide practical guidance to farmers who are considering investing in a solar electric system so they are able to make fully informed investment decisions. While the target audience is farmers, the information presented will also be a professional development opportunity for Extension educators.
