Lock in Energy Prices for 30 Years and Gain Independence
With all the variables and risks in every season, knowing energy costs would ensure more accurate planning. Solar power can reduce expenses and create more financial stability by locking in the cost of energy of the life of the solar array. Combining the farming sector’s grants and tax credits with competitive AG solar financing, on-farm solar is an easy decision with compelling long-term financial benefits.
Emergent Solar Energy has the experience and industry knowledge to make Hoosier farm solar projects a compelling business decision for our farm clients. We’ve worked with Indiana growers of corn & beans, seed processors, hog, poultry, dairy farmers, grain drying and storage, feed mills and many of other types of farms and rural businesses. Emergent Solar Energy makes on-farm solar affordable and have streamlined the way solar energy is designed and built for the agricultural industry throughout Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and the Midwest.
An important way your farm can benefit by working with Emergent Solar Energy is because we use American-Made solar components in our commercial solar projects. This is important because of the assurance of higher quality manufacturing, supporting the American workforce and economy, and for reducing our nations need for foreign energy by supporting American clean energy independence.
We've build some of the largest agricultural solar projects in Indiana
Emergent Solar Energy is located in Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette, Indiana and we work closely with the agricultural community. We have designed and built some of the largest farm-owned solar projects in the state of Indiana. You can read about our work featured in these respected agriculture publications.
Emergent Solar Energy commissioned the Resler Feeder Hog LLC solar array in Mishawaka, Indiana in late 2018, and it is one of Indiana's largest agricultural solar projects. This is a 155kW DC solar array that offsets more than 75% of this hog farms electric expense. This project also qualified for a USDA REAP grant along with long-term solar AG financing that allowed the project to cashflow with short payback period and an attractive ROI. You can lean more about how we help Indiana farms product their own power with solar, our financing options, and USDA REAP grants by clicking below.
There’s a 100-percent guarantee that the cost of sun will not increase in the next 100 years. Your utility can't make that claim. You're going spend money either way for electricity, it makes sense to consider switching to solar.

On-Farm Solar Energy for Indiana Agricultural Operations
Hog | Poultry | Dairy Farms
Animal confinement operations such as pork, poultry and dairy are an ideal match for solar as their energy costs are one of their largest expenses. Emergent Solar helps Indiana CAFO farmers reduce this cost and maximize project ROI with tax incentives and USDA REAP grants for on-farm solar.
Seed Processors | Feed Mills | Agribusiness
Rural businesses that serve the Indiana agriculture sector can benefit from the cost savings of switching to solar in the same way as farm operations. The solar tax incentives combined with a USDA REAP grant application substantially improves your projects economics.
Corn & Soy Bean Growers | Grain Storage
Indiana grain and produce farmers can dramatically cut their dependence on their electric utility or co-op by investing in on-farm solar. The USDA REAP grant along with the federal solar tax incentives and depreciation make investing in solar grain dryers and storage very compelling.
We Are Experts in USDA REAP Grants & Indiana Farm Solar Incentives
The USDA offers the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) for farm producers and rural businesses to help offset the costs of solar energy applications. We have successfully helped several Indiana farmers receive REAP grants for up to 25% of their solar projects cost. Solar for Indiana farms can produce some compelling project economics with the 30% solar Investment Tax Credit, Bonus MACRS Depreciation, Indiana Sales Tax Exemptions and the USDA REAP Grant. Taken together these solar incentives can offset a large portion of your farms solar projects costs and help you gain energy independence and reach your long-term stewardship goals.
