Solar Technology in Agriculture
Rural areas depend on agriculture and need to access renewable sources of energy to make a sustainable living. Agricultural processing such as irrigation, poultry lighting, and pest control do not require high energy output and solar photovoltaic cells are a proven choice as an energy source.
Since farming and agriculture consume a large amount of electricity for irrigation, plowing, greenhouses, heating and cooling of buildings that house livestock, and dairy operations, utility bills can drain the budget. But, with solar power, while the upfront cost may be high, farmers will benefit in the long term. This free ebook chapter explores the use of solar technology in agriculture and its benefits.Author: IntechOpen
