Ellen Polishuk, the owner of Plant To Profit. She installed a 40 panel (15.4 kW) solar system at her homestead garden and research station where she grows for her family’s needs and experiments with various tools and techniques to help her business’ grower clients.
As a Farm Consultant, Ellen helps clients perfect their growing process, labor management, and profitability. That’s why the environmental and economic benefits made solar a perfect fit for her. “Solar fits with my personal and company mission to live lightly on the earth and conserve precious resources” stated Ms. Polishuk. “It promotes a positive eco-friendly ethos, and fits with the mission of all farms to be providers of food and fiber, NOT resource-mining businesses.”
