Why Use a Solar Irrigation System for Farming? 

Installing a commercial solar system at your cannabis farm has a lot of benefits that you don’t want to miss out on. 

Save on Electricity Costs 

Whether you’re a small grow operation or a massive farm, electricity is likely one of your biggest expenses. It takes a lot of energy to power grow rooms, irrigation systems, and everything else needed to run your farm. Solar panels can generate all the electricity you need, and you won’t have to pay for any of the electricity they produce. With commercial solar panels for your cannabis farm, you’ll be able to cut down your operating expenses significantly. 

Bring Power to a Remote Location 

If you don’t have grid access already, you want solar for your cannabis farm. PG&E is charging $100,000 per quarter mile for electrical wires. You can install a microgrid or off-grid solar for your cannabis farm without spending that kind of money, and you’ll own the power you generate. 

Get Reliable Power 

If you are connected to the grid, you’ve probably noticed how spotty and unstable it can be. Unexpected (and even planned) outages are a huge problem that can shut down your irrigation system and impact your crop. With solar, you’ll have access to reliable energy that isn’t affected by grid outages. 

Get Tax Breaks 

Did you know cannabis farms are eligible for the solar tax credit? The federal solar tax credit reduces your businesses federal tax liability by 30% of your total solar installation costs. It covers solar panels, solar batteries, off-grid solar, and microgrids, and can help you save thousands of dollars on solar for your cannabis farm.
