Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have declined in price in recent years, greatly improving their economics and potential use in rural areas. This fall Nebraska Extension will be hosting workshops on Solar Energy in Agriculture: Considerations for Investing in Photovoltaic Solar Systems at three locations: North Platte, York, and Norfolk. These workshops will feature discussions on the feasibility and economics of such systems for farms, ranches, and small businesses. Participants will learn how to use basic online tools to model their own locations and learn about economic considerations such as payback, grants, tax credits, and depreciation.
