Benefits of Solar Farms
Solar farms (sometimes known as solar parks or solar fields) are the large-scale application of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to generate green, clean electricity at scale, usually to feed into the grid. You might think only big utility companies can profit from solar farms. But with Massachusetts’ law of virtual net metering, an opportunity exists for land owners across the state to either benefit from owning their own solar farm or can retain a company like Solar On Earth to build a solar farm on your property and pay you an attractive land lease for years to come.
Does Your Land Qualify?
Solar farms can be designed on parcels as small as 1 acre and as large as 100 acres or more. They are usually developed in rural areas. Whether your parcel is a candidate depends upon many factors including the characteristics of the land (i.e. the existence of wetlands, slope, soil conditions, etc), the proximity to the grid, and the capacity of the local grid infrastructure. Talk to a Solar On Earth Commercial Consultant to find out how you can benefit.
Solar farms go through a rigorous planning procedure before they are approved. This takes into account the suitability of the specific site, any potential impact on the area, and relevant renewable energy targets.
