Electricity is one of the biggest expenses for most farmers. It's critically important for farmers to control this expense to remain profitable for the long haul. That's why the owner of Oyster Road Farm invested in solar energy. The 297 solar panels installed on the roof of one of his poultry houses will offset 95% of the electricity used at the farm. This will save the owner thousands of dollars each year. That's a large sum of money that can be reinvested back in the farm.
