Solar Programs for Dairy Farmers

Dairy farmers require a lot of energy to operate their business. This can be expensive for a dairy farmer, which is why we explored new ways to cut operating costs on dairy farms. We are introducing community solar programs developed across the USA that provide local communities and businesses with clean energy and electricity-saving plans. Especially for dairy farmers, community (or shared) solar puts you at ease that everything from the land to the energy is natural, affordable, and high quality.

Community solar is a solar power plant producing electricity that is shared among many properties in your area. Sign up with a simple subscription and experience no disruption in service for your dairy farm. You will receive up to 10% off your monthly energy bill.

How does solar power for dairy farms work?

The power for your dairy farm is still being provided by your utility company and you will still receive bills from them. On each bill, there will now be a line item with your bill credits – up to 100% of your dairy farm’s energy bill. You then receive a bill from OYA for 90% of the bill credits and are guaranteed to keep 10% in savings.

How do I sign up for solar dairy farming?

Sign up for solar dairy farming with a simple subscription from OYA Solar. An OYA representative specialized in solar energy for dairy farming will be in touch with you throughout the entire process.
