A vegetable farm, located in suburban Montgomery County (not in the Agricultural Reserve), where neighbors have made their land available for vegetable production, which vegetables are processed and cooled with electricity from a solar panel installation on the farmer’s rooftop at home. This installation of 24 solar panels rated at 8.12 kW total which was added in 2020 produces an estimated 10,460 kWh of electric power per year. It was originally estimated to offset 84% of our electricity usage and over more than two years since our solar system went live, it has provided considerably more than the usage annually.
