Sustainability With Solar

Make your farming or processing operation more competitive, profitable and sustainable with NewGen Energy. On average, NewGen Energy customers who install a 1MW solar system offset $265,000 in utility costs in the first year alone. As a grower you have specific energy needs. Many businesses have started using solar power for agriculture industry applications. At NewGen Energy we will custom design a system to meet your precise requirements. Let our local team of solar engineers design the best solar system for your operation. We will review your power needs and provide a custom and personalized solution created specifically for you. Our consulting engineers, technical designers and installers can take care of every part of your agricultural solar project including design, engineering, financing, installation and solar system maintenance and support.

Your needs change, your power requirements change as well. At NewGen Energy we calculate your usage in the same format that your utility company reads it. We then break it down by the day and hour to calculate your power usage demands, and the different agriculture and usage rates.

This accurate metering gives you the data you need to save the most on utilities and your overall ROI. If not done properly – considering every detail including location of your solar installation, your solar system could be over or undersized which could result in thousands of wasted dollars. At Pav-Solar, by tailoring your solar installation to your land and agricultural specifications and future growth, the end result is the best solar utilization and overall increased POI.

A consolidated solar solution for all of your irrigation pumps

Solar Made Simple for Agriculture

Energy costs are rising every day. For growers and processors in the agriculture industry, markets are unpredictable and margins can be tight. You need to get a handle on it all with predictable electricity costs, and a sustainable energy resource you can generate onsite: solar.

NewGen Energy specializes in solar solutions for farms and agribusinesses: We partner with you to design energy strategies that save, on average, $50,000 per acre compared with crop yields. Working together, we power a more sustainable and resilient food supply.

A Solar Solution Fit For You

NewGen has been working with customers in the agriculture industry since 2012 to build alternative energy systems that electrify irrigation pumps and provide clean power for processing your crops. Cold storage, machinery and all the electrical operations that drive your agribusiness.

Growers

Whether your growing fruits, vegetable, nuts, cotton or other crops, solar can help shave off utility costs, an excellent hedge against inflation, solar can help growers offset the high costs of irrigation and other operational costs.

Processors

Processing crops require a lot of energy, and seasonal demand spikes can cause your utility bill to surge unexpectedly. A solar and storage solution keeps cost stable so. you can focus on the harvest.

Dairies and Ranch

Dairies and ranches have unique needs when it comes to energy. Dairies use solar to offset the costs of constant electrification for milking machines, HVAC and refrigeration, ranches appreciate the ability to turn underutilized land into a cost-saving solar array.

Distributors

Distributing food requires logistics management and optimal col storage every step of the way. In addition, trucking fleets are rapidly moving to electrification. Solar can help reduce operational costs on both fronts.

Solar Net Metering

If you have priced solar power recently, we encourage you to look again. With Net Metering Aggregation you can dramatically decrease your solar needs. NewGen Energy is dedicated to bring our customers clear and accurate information about the Net Metering Aggregation process, and how they can best benefit from these resources. With net metering, landowners can devote the part of their land that is most suitable to solar power generation and credit the energy production from solar to their most expensive meters, as long as the land is contingent. Using this Technology, agricultural businesses can connect multiple meters to a single, centralized solar panel system, even if meters are on adjacent properties, helpingt, drive costs down significantly. Not only does this offer more freedom for solar installation and location, it also provides flexible shifting of offsets as usage changes, resulting in the maximum solar ROI. We have found that net metering is where our customers can gain the most in cost savings and revenue. In addition, solar can be installed on existing overhead structures at the current yard to protect equipment or materials.
