A central tenet of Renew Agriculture is that farms are an immense source of energy. Energy from the sun is a crop. Just like agriculture has reliably fed humanity over millennia, farms will reliably provide energy in future. Renew Agriculture neither uses agricultural land for growing crops nor any resources of traditional farming.

How?

Strategically located poles and panels on each farm will generate sufficient energy even on smallest farm.

16 Panels can provide 9600 kwh of energy annually

2048 kilowatts of electricity are provided to each farm based on a calculation of needs. This is carbon dividend.

Consolidate Energy from Farms

The balance, 7552 kilowatts (9600-2048) of energy is fed to a microgrid on nonarable land nearby. The microgrid consolidates energy from farms and provides resilience by managing locally available sources of energy Wind, Genset, Biomass, Flywheel, Hydro, High-Capacity Capacitor, Battery.

Support for local uses of electricity

Microgrid potentially distributes power to meet local needs of Homes, Street Lights, Auto Charging, ATM, Grocery, Agricultural Loads, Industrial Loads, Sewage, Waterworks all connected at a Microgrid Station. It provides additional income. The Microgrid can stand alone, islanded, or connect to a utility grid.
