Solar grids in the United States launched a new sales program targeting American poultry farmers to switch to solar power solutions for their energy-intensive operations. The announcement of USA Solar Networks, a subsidiary of Solar Integrated Roofing Corp. (SIRC), comes after a successful beta test in Arkansas with a closing ratio far exceeding national trade averages, according to the company.
The poultry farm industry in the United States includes more than 233,000 poultry farms that generate revenues of over $ 40 billion annually. Electricity is often the second most important expense for farms that require extensive lighting, ventilation, heating, cooling, and power lines.
USA Solar Networks’ new program enables farmers to take advantage of the benefits of clean energy to power their operations, including federal tax subsidies available to businesses, the reduction or elimination of high utility costs and the substantial increase in cash flow over 25 years. In addition, the Rural Energy for American Program (REAP) of the United States Department of Agriculture can help farmers reduce their energy costs. Under this program, farmers are eligible to receive a subsidy of up to 25% of the cost of the solar project, which can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.
âThe poultry industry has long been overlooked by the solar industry despite being heavy consumers of electrical power,â said Pablo Diaz, CEO of USA Solar Networks and President of Solar Integrated Roofing Corp. âTheir high electricity costs make these farmers ideal candidates for the solar energy solutions we offer. In our beta program to test this market, we sent a team to Mena, Arkansas, a rural town with a high population of poultry farms. On our first visit, we caught up with six business owners to explain how a solar system could cut costs for their business. We signed development agreements with four of them, for contracts totaling more than $ 2.5 million. This closing ratio of 66% far exceeds that of the national average of commercial sales by 20%. “
David Massey, CEO of Solar Integrated Roofing Corporation, added, âWe were impressed with the beta test results in Arkansas and are confident that the nationwide rollout of this targeted program can generate more than $ 50 million in new projects in 2022., with development agreements signed with 100 poultry farms. Over the next few months, the USA Solar Networks team will be returning to Arkansas and neighboring states to deliver the benefits of solar power.

âPablo once again demonstrated his value and why we recently tasked him with leading the growth of the SIRC family of companies as President. He continues to introduce innovative solutions for new, existing and untapped markets, contributing to our strong organic growth momentum and shareholder value. We look forward to sharing further developments and initiatives in the coming months, âMassey concluded.
