What’s Photovoltaic Power?

Solar farms are replacing croplands since they don’t create enough income from traditional farming. Photovoltaic power are stationed on empty industrial sites or land that hasn’t grown crops in years. Both panels and solar power serve the same purpose.


Panels in our homes are typically mounted on the roof that gets solar energy from the sun and converts it into Alternating Current (AC) for use in the residence. Solar farms is a large area of land where solar tracking towers are mounted to give power to a community of people.


Developing photovoltaic power is an expensive business. An upfront amount of 1 million dollars to start a solar farm in no small change. Despite this mind boggling amount, the return on investment are time worthy long term. Panels are used to create renewable power that you sell to the electric utility that they distribute for other uses.


Solar Farms

So when you place panels on your roof, you get a second meter. You’ll continue to keep your first meter and continue to purchase electricity you use from the utilities. The second meter measures the power your panels generate. Your utility company pays you for the power that goes out through this meter.


You’ll continue to be a customer while being a solar farmer. As a solar farmer, the electricity that you create pays you. Your power is used by others the decreases the electric utility to purchase fossil fuels. The more solar energy generated, the less fossil fuel is being produced.


Photovoltaic power is stationed on land where various ground-mount solar tracking towers are placed. The solar farm developers industry are made up of companies that build solar power network systems from group up. This are solar farms on a utility scale. The work consists of mining new work and rebuilds.


The renewable energy industry is the fastest growing source of solar energy in the U.S. It creates electricity to power over 2.2 million home and developed more than 11,000 new American jobs. It’s definitely a win-win.


Government Incentives

The solar farm developers industry has grown significantly over time. Demand for new solar farms has been high and supported by government incentives. One of the more well known incentives is the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) which backs investment into clean energy technologies by offering tax credits.


With these government incentives, solar farms are built at at aggressive rates over the recent years. Capital costs that have dropped have expanded the industry’s profit margins. They're responsible for employing people that plays a role in our economy and environment.
