Purdue Extension will present a workshop in Rochester to show the benefits of solar energy used on farms and in rural small businesses.
The Solar Energy Applications for Agriculture Workshop will be on Nov. 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Fulton County fairgrounds, 1009 W. Third St.
This is an educational program to show how solar energy panels operate, said Chad Martin, an Extension renewable energy specialist.
“There’s been growing interest in adopting solar energy on farms due to the reduced cost of insulation,” Martin said. “So we want to showcase projects that have occurred in Indiana to get farmers and rural small businesses interested in different models of solar photovoltaic and solar hot water insulations.” usa online casino echeck
