Some providers have limited support for financing and no ability to maintain the system after installation. We do everything in house and have an experienced team to make the solar experience easy for you.
Barn roofs, houses, unfarmed land — all can be sites for solar energy systems that serve as income generation opportunities for farmers. As energy costs continue to rise, solar energy systems make possible lower operating costs, using less energy to perform daily operations and allowing a more predictable budget for security in years of potential revenue decrease.
Fertilizer, seed and diesel fuel prices keep going up. Farms and agricultural businesses want predicable operating costs. So it makes sense to control some of your input costs. Solar technology lasts over 30 years. If a good business year enables some tax-sheltered capital investments that provide many more years of reduced utility bills, why not do it?
So think of solar as an investment in the future of your farm. The only difference between a solar array and a pole building or a tractor is the utilization and the expected years of payback. Sound capital investments like solar electric and solar thermal energy systems will benefit your family operation over time.
Panels are mounted at a fixed angle facing south. More advanced systems may feature panels mounted on a tracking device that follows the sun, increasing the efficiency of the system.

What others say about us
“I would highly recommend VES. All of their workers were very professional and kept me well informed of what they were doing and when. From the install of the ground mount system to setting the 48 panels — the electricians were very knowledgeable, workmanship was excellent.”
“The warranty and reputation are admirable. All aspects of the transaction were professional, timely, informative and top-notch when it came to customer service by explaining, problem solving, listening to requests and overall communication.”
“I had a wonderful experience with VES from initial contact to installation. I don’t do a lot of reviews but I don’t think these guys are getting the notice they should be getting. They have a professional setup team, construction team and ongoing service team. The materials are of a high quality and are designed to last. The planning and installation was very carefully done with a great deal of consideration to system effectiveness and aesthetics.”
“I have become very concerned about America’s use of energy, primarily fossil fuels. Our use of these fuels has a significant impact on our environment. I found VES to be the perfect partner. They have taken care of every one of the many daunting steps from grant application to turning on the switch. I now have solar installations on all of my retail stores using 50% less electricity and with pay back periods as little as 5 years.”
