New Zealand farmers making money from farming solar

For farmers, investing in power seems to be the perfect balance of off-setting carbon emissions and saving money on energy bills.

People that benefit the most from solar power systems in New Zealand are the ones that use the majority of power during the day when the solar power is generated, which a lot of farms would fall into this category.

With Meridians new pricing scheme, it is designed so you benefit more if you use power during the day when the solar power is created and you will get a higher return on your investment as a result.  The pricing scheme is less beneficial for those who want to just send all of the power to the grid hoping to earn profit from selling power like mini energy provider.  That is why any commercial outfits that use power during the day should consider installing solar power.

Farm sheds are the perfect pre-exisiting structure for solar power systems to go on, you just have to add the solar panels, the solar inverter and wiring and they are ready to go.
