Electric bills are a big expense, and with solar panels constantly dropping in price, it’s worth considering for many property owners, including farmers.
The Lakeland Agricultural Research Association will be hosting a workshop explaining the benefits farmers can reap if they go solar. The workshop will be held on May 24th at the Craigend Hall from 10 to 3.
Executive Director of the Solar Energy Society of Alberta Rob Harlan will be conducting the presentation. He has eighteen years experience designing and installing solar electric and solar hot water systems in the US and Canada and helped found four non-profit renewable energy societies in California.
Although the workshop is primarily aimed at farmers, any kind of property owner could use the advice the presentation has.
“It’s not just for farm applications,” says Environmental Program Manager for LARA Kellie Nichiporik. “It [covers] basically your entire household use. Whether you’re a farmer and looking to use a lot bigger equipment or if you’re just an acreage or urban resident looking to reduce costs on your power bills, it goes about how to do it.”
