Agriculture and Cold Storage

Leading Farmers and Food processing Choose REC Solar

Farmers and food processors face the challenges of reducing operating costs, supporting market-specific sustainability programs in the U.S. and abroad, and differentiating themselves in the marketplace. REC Solar helps address all these challenges by providing clean, renewable energy through end-to-end solar energy solutions that lower costs and improve the brand in the eyes of retailers and end consumers.

REC Solar is an agricultural and cold storage solar expert. We have earned the respect of large and small farmers and food processors through our deep understanding of agriculture land permitting and energy rate structures. While agricultural energy rates are relatively low, energy costs can still be high due to hidden costs in price rate schedules, depending on energy usage patterns. If not properly understood, managed and modeled when evaluating a solar system, return on investment (ROI) estimates can be inaccurate. REC Solar’s deep experience with the many applicable tariff schedules, available incentives, agriculture’s varying energy usage patterns, and energy modeling provides farmers and food processors with the most accurate ROI estimates for their system and greater confidence in their sustainable investment.

We help every step of the way. REC Solar first works with your team to optimize your site, choose the right technology and evaluate alternative bank financing options. We guide you through securing federal and state financial incentives to reduce your system costs. We identify project obstacles early on, manage each step of the design and construction process, and finally help you promote the switch to a clean renewable energy source with public

REC Solar addresses all available options available to farmers and food processors. Whether you are interested in just offsetting operating costs with your own turnkey system, selling all the power generated back to the utility or leasing land to a solar power developer – we provide the expert guidance to help you incorporate solar into your operations.
