Solar Electric Customer Minnesota

At Strawbale Farms, we understand firsthand the challenges commercial and agricultural sectors face from uncertain markets to unpredictable weather. A Next Energy Solution Solar Energy System from Strawbale Farms can help you control electric costs today and well into the future. In fact, our systems are designed to perform year after year and come with a 30-year performance warranty.

Typically, for both commercial and agricultural properties, the bulk of the electrical usage occurs during the daytime when solar energy is producing the most power. This can offset your usage from the traditional electrical grid resulting in a lower electrical cost to you.

A solar electric system is also a great way to ensure your business’ future and the environment’s future by providing you with dependable, low maintenance, renewable energy. And, by controlling costs long term you will be able to hedge against unforeseen expenses, plan ahead and increased stability and security. 

From dairy farms to car washes to office buildings, solar electric can help your business or your facility be seen as a leader in the green energy movement. A solar electric system can increase the resale value of your property by about $15,000 for every 5KW in system size and solar electric systems are not taxable on your property taxes. Current tax incentives give you a great return on investment for your business! 

And, Next Energy Solution can supply all necessary components and also install and wire the rails and panels. You, the customer, can then hire a local electrician to mount and wire the inverter and disconnects. Many people, especially commercial businesses or farm customers, have electricians they work with already, so this can also be a real money saver.

So, whether your electric load is big or small we will work to help you achieve your energy goals! Discover true energy independence and savings with a solar electric system from Strawbale Farms/ Next Energy Solution.

Join the clean/green energy movement today and get your business started on the path towards increased stability with solar electric from Strawbale Farms.
