How efficient is a solar barn?
A renewable and sustainable energy source like solar power is a clean and efficient way for you to power your barn. Properly placed, a solar panel system can help you capture around 20% of the sun’s energy.
Why solar power is the best option for powering your barn
Think about it. Barns are often located in areas so remote that a traditional power source like electricity either can’t be run to it at all or, if the power company will run the power cables, they’ll charge you an arm and a leg for it. Solar panels are a great option for powering your barn—they’re eco-friendly, they’re efficient and they can help save money in the long run. Plus, you can have them anywhere the sun shines.
Alternative options to powering your barn
You do have alternative options to powering your barn. When your barn’s location isn’t an issue you could choose to use ‘regular’ cabled electricity as your primary source of power and then choose to supplement that with either wind or solar power.
Pros & Cons of Solar Barns
Here are some things to consider when you’re deciding whether or not to use a solar panel system to power your barn.
1. Solar Panels can Help Save Money: Using a solar panel system to power your barn can help you save up to 30 percent on your energy costs. You can either pocket that savings or use it to invest in updated equipment.
2. Reduce Maintenance Costs: With a solar panel system, as opposed to a wind powered system, you don’t have to worry about costs associated with regular maintenance.
1. Backup Source Needed: Remember that solar power only works when the sun is out. So, you’ll need to have a backup plan for nighttime or when it’s not sunny out.
2. Structural Considerations: Make sure your barn’s roof can support the weight of a solar panel system. If it won’t and you have to explore other installation alternatives, then you will most likely incur additional costs.
