Agricultural Solar Electric Investment Analysis Webinar Series

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Cost: Free

Part 1: Estimating System Production, Assessing System Costs 

Sponsored by: North Central SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education)

Photo-voltaic (PV) panels are an increasingly common sight homes, farms, and businesses across the Midwest. Declining cost of PV solar installations makes installing a distributed solar electric system enticing for many farmers. Evaluating the financial investment in solar requires careful consideration of system costs, the value of production, and operation and maintenance costs. Unfortunately, some proposals are hard to understand making it difficult to make fully informed investment decisions.

This 4 part webinar series will provide you with resources and tools to help consult farmers who are considering investing in a solar electric system so they are able to make fully informed investment decisions. Although the webinars are geared to an agricultural audience, the information that will be shared applies to anyone looking for information on making a wise solar energy investment.

The target audience of this webinar series is rural bankers, lenders, and others who want to know more about evaluating solar PV systems.
