Sigora Solar installed 504 solar modules on the Shafer property. A 171kW system on Shafer’s poultry houses will produce the same amount of electricity as 17 homes. It will offset 100 percent of his lighting and climate control energy costs, while reducing 157 metric tons of CO2 emissions. It’s also the equivalent of 185 acres of forest CO2 sequestration. The 10kW system on his house will dramatically lower his personal utility bills.
“I’m a fan of innovation. This is a significant personal investment and I believe solar energy for any kind of farm makes good business sense,” Shafer said. “This new system by Sigora Solar is a great start. I’m looking forward to the savings the system provides my farm, and family.
