“We are always looking for ways to help the agricultural community improve its impact on the environment” says Mike Bouk, Executive Director of Ag Energy “and utilizing solar energy is a perfect example of what can be done to reduce our carbon footprint – it doesn’t create pollution, harm our health or emit greenhouse gases that can contribute to climate change.” Ag Energy projects that customers will realize attractive returns from investing in solar energy systems under the new program. “Our program creates standardized packages to simplify the customer`s involvement and takes advantage of our buying power to lower the costs of the systems being sold,” says Bouk. “Customers may also lease about 1,000 sqft to the Co-op for us to install and own the system.”
