Coastal Solar carved out a niche in the crowded renewable energy space by specializing in systems for the agricultural industry, alongside their residential and commercial solar business. With a focus on farmers as the future of renewable energy and an in-house grant writing team that boasts a 90% success rate in USDA REAP grant application approvals, they created a new company solely dedicated to the agricultural industry — Ag Solar Solutions.
Looking for an innovative company to help solve common energy challenges faced by the agricultural industry, Ag Solar Solutions partnered with sonnen, Inc., a global leader in residential clean energy management solutions. By combining the solar from two existing Coastal Solar customers’ farms with three of sonnen’s safe and long-lasting 30 kWh intelligent energy storage system, the ecoLinx30, they created the perfect solution for powering six poultry broiler houses.
How it works: Solar panels on each property generate clean, renewable energy from the sun to power the circulation fans and manage the temperature in the broiler houses in order to help farmers sustainably maintain chicken health throughout the day. Simultaneously, the sonnen energy storage system uses its intelligent electronics to prioritize the use of clean energy before relying on the utility grid, detecting when there’s excess solar power and storing it for use at night, when solar production is low, or even during power outages.
