There is an important reason to do this now: Thanks to the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” the Federal government will provide us with a 30% rebate on the entire project. Currently we estimate that to be almost $88,000 of savings!
It’s also a great deal in the longer term. According to our solar design consultants, with the savings the array will generate, we should pay off the cost of the system in less than 10 years.
Not only will this array help us reduce our climate impact right away, it will help even more in the years to come.
Currently we operate six pieces of heavy equipment that all burn a lot of diesel. It is our intention to eventually replace them all with electric machinery, which we can charge using solar power.
