In the Winter of 2017, we installed this 15kW Grid-tie Solar array on the barn of Mile End Farm to offset the electricity used in the electric heat lamps used to raise chicks. As a result Mile End Farm was able to market its Solar Powered Chickens and get a premium for this product. 

You can learn more here on Tim McGiffin's Shaw showcase on Youtube.

The folks over at Whitehouse Stables, also featured in the youtube video also became our customers. You can see their project here.
