David was able to power his 4 turkey houses, which have a combined total of thirty-four, 52” tunnel fans that run constantly to keep more than 110,000 turkeys cool in the summer months, and still generate enough electricity to power his home. Solar power virtually eliminated his electricity bill.
“I’ll have my own little power plant” – David Hughes, The Washington Times.
What truly excited David about his new system, was the investment in solar power in general. After watching a few other farms in his area make the switch to solar, David recognized the immediate environmental and financial impact solar would have for his business.
David expressed that the 30% federal tax credit he will receive over the next few years is reason enough to invest in solar power.
