Renewable energy can address critical resource needs in agriculture as well as the challenges of climate change, which can impact agriculture in many ways. Farm energy production can contribute to overall economic viability of farms. Therefore, thinking about alternative sources, such as solar energy, geothermal energy and wind energy, is important to farm economics and sustainable practices. Using solar power, a farmer can boost on-farm energy production without dramatically raising costs. Green energy, also known as clean energy, is a viable option for combating climate change. Investing in this kind of sustainable energy on your farm operation could prove beneficial to farm finances. Geothermal power and wind power are both clean power options worth considering if a financially sound and sustainably managed farm is the end goal. Key practices include energy conservation/efficiency, energy use and consumption, byproduct utilization, renewable energy, solar energy, wind power, geothermal.
