Solar farms are similar to traditional farms except that they utilize the energy from the sun to generate power in a cost efficient manner. Solar energy is typically gathered using mirrors and solar panels strategically placed throughout the farm. The mirrors and panels are used to direct light to other areas of the farm where it can be used as electricity. By using solar power, solar farms can reduce the costs associated with farming which can in turn reduce the overall price that consumers must pay to purchase food.
Solar farms are becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States. California and Florida are currently leading the trend with the highest number of solar farms. However, many States are planing to build more farms in the upcoming years. One of the main reasons for the rise the popularity is that solar energy is a renewable energy source. The ability to use a renewable energy source means that farmers will gain access to perpetual energy without having to rely on raw materials such as fuel. When solar energy is compared to other renewable energy sources, it’s cost benefit analysis edges out it’s peers. For example, hydroelectric is a renewable energy resource. However, it requires that a dam be built in order to harvests energy from the water and convert it to electricity. Meanwhile, solar energy can be harvested by simply using mirrors and panels which comprise of different solar electrical systems.
Once the initial investment has been recovered, there are virtually no costs associated with a solar farm’s renewable energy source. The payback period can also be short depending on the amount of electricity that needs to be produced. Financial incentives are available from the government that serve to reduce your overall investment costs. For instance, if solar farms produce more energy than it uses, it’s utility company can buy it from the farm and build up credit on the farm’s account.
Solar farms have an additional practical use. Not only can the solar energy that it produces be used to offset energy consumption costs but, it will also continue to supply the farm with energy in the event of a power outage. Solar systems act completely independent and do not require a connection to power or gas grid at all. For this reason, solar systems are able to be installed in remote locations. This is a practical and cost effective benefit over supplying utility electricity to a new site. Farms are able to reduce their dependance on foreign sources of energy and better equip farmers in case of disasters or events that effect the cost or availability of fuel.

Materials used in solar panels on these solar farms will last for decades. Once a system is installed at a solar farm, there are no recurring costs. Solar farming provides flexibility since more panels can be added in the future as energy production needs increase. Solar panels have no moving parts and maintenance on them is minimal. Solar farming could quite possibly be one of the great innovations of our time.
