On a farm, there are a lot of places you can spend your money, but few of those investments will set your farm up with long-term savings like solar will. That’s why Wallace Schaefer, the owner of the Schaefer-Landis Farm in Cumberland, VA, decided to make a difference with solar.
Wallace almost completely eliminated an annual electric bill of $9,000; plus, he was able to greatly reduce the taxes he owed. That’s instant savings that he can now reinvest into other areas of his farm.
