So much on your farm is powered by the sun – why not your electricity?
SunCommon offers three unique ways to bring solar to your farm:
A PV system for your farm’s electricity use: Install just enough solar panels to cover your own usage. Great financing options means this is an excellent option no matter your cash flow situation.
Install panels for your own usage and a small circle of friends: If you’ve had a good year and are ready to make a bigger cash investment, adding panels for others to use means you have a new way to generate income for 25 years.
Host a community solar array for your own power and your neighbors: The biggest investment for the biggest return. Host enough panels on your farm to power your own usage plus 40-50 homes that generates an impressive and predictable return.
Impressive state and federal incentives make clean energy an incredible investment for your business:
Cash-flow positive in just a few years
Payback in 6-9 years
Boost your brand and employee satisfaction
Hear From Local Farmers About Going Solar With SunCommon:
As dairy farmers, it’s very important for us to budget our expenses to remain a viable business. When the CSA program at SunCommon was created we knew we had found a great fit. By hosting a CSA, we have secured predictable, constant electricity rates for our farm, and also developed a new form of the working landscape.

It’s great that fighting climate change could be a solid, low-risk investment. I’m excited to explore how hosting our own small community solar array here at Ellerslie will offer us a connection for both our power, and other farm products to our customers. Adding tax benefits and long term income generation make it a no brainer.

We are called Footprint Farm, in that we want to reduce our carbon footprint. And then also economically, SunCommon was able to make it work for us. The economics of it are pretty simple.
