The concept of dual-purpose solar is relatively new and although renewable companies of all sizes have been exploring the benefits of co-managing solar power and agriculture, exciting research and development is still underway.
The donation is the largest unrestricted charitable contribution that IREC has received. Through a long-term power purchase agreement, the system will generate revenue that will help support the organization’s programs for at least 13 years.
Many homes that use deep-cycle batteries as part of their renewable energy or off-grid power system’s energy storage, are often strained to maximum capacity levels. The result is sets of batteries that don’t seem to last as long as they used to.
The benefits go much beyond quality illumination. Eventually, the un-electrified households received grid connection. In spite of receiving grid connection, the SDS continued to have its benefits among the households.
Collectively, the solar installation donated to the pantry will relieve an annual electrical bill exceeding $10,500. Going forward, the new 33 KW system will mean those funds can instead be allocated to purchasing food for pantry clients—enough food to prepare 6,360 meals.
The COVID-19 pandemic, upon initial lockdowns and social distancing orders, showed that fast change is possible with the right tools. While pollution drops haven’t lasted, a way forward is clear.
As the solar wind streams toward Earth, it carries the Sun’s magnetic field. Moving very fast, it hits into the Earth’s magnetic field, causing a shock to our magnetic protection, which results in turbulence.
