Major Benefits and Advantages of Solar Farming
There are virtually countless benefits of solar farming. Some are obvious,
such as the fact that solar energy is clean energy, and some are not so
obvious, such as reducing water usage in California. The potential return
on investment is quite attractive, and financing incentives are making solar
farming easier than it has ever been. This is of course in addition to the
reduction in costs to build solar panels by as much as 60% in recent years.
These advancements and cost reductions make the many benefits of solar
farming even more attainable.
When you factor in the idea of placing solar farms at each of our palm farms,
in addition to the carbon credits received from each tree on this property,
there are major tax credits, as well as sellable energy now part of the equation to help this program become a major success. The first benefit of solar farming is of course environmental. The sun is a clean, renewable source of energy that has very few negative effects on the environment. The only argument that could be said against it really is that it takes up space and that that panels could be considered damaging to a natural ecosystem. However, there are new ideas to combat this issue every day. Many areas are being considered fair game for solar farms and they each reduce the effect of the panels on previously untouched ecosystems.
Another idea that leads to another great benefit is to switch cotton farms in California over to solar farms. One of the benefits of solar farming in this capacity is the reduction of water usage where there is already a shortage that is supposed to worsen in future years. The possibilities are significant.
The environmental benefits of solar farming are undeniable, but the financial benefits cannot be ignored either. There are numerous ways to finance solar farming, from investors to government subsidies, and the profit-making potential only gets greater with the falling costs and increased financing options. Creating more solar energy to be released into the power grid reduces the amount of energy from non-renewable sources needed. But the money is made from selling renewable certificates. These can be sold to utilities or to individuals through the power utilities, and the result is a hefty profit to the solar farm owner.
Thus, putting California Style Palms Inc. in an excellent position with acres of solar farms planned at EACH and every one of our properties as we roll them up into our California Style all inclusive environmental impact/investor beneficial program. The benefits of solar farming far outweigh any potential negative effects or costs. The panels are pricey but the price is falling, and with innovative ideas when it comes to space, these farms could well be the future of the world’s energy sources. In the not too distant future it is even predicted that solar energy will make up to one-quarter of the world’s electricity.
