LightWave Solar will explain how solar energy works in the TVA region and focus on the financial benefits of adding solar photovoltaics (PV) to a farm. The presentation will cover the basics of solar energy including system components, costs, and a breakdown of the available incentives, including TVA’s solar buyback program, the 30% federal tax credit and accelerated depreciation, and the KY Agricultural Development Fund (KADF) On-Farm Energy Grant which covers 50% of system cost up to $15,000. We will also cover the low interest (2.75%) energy loans that are available for farm projects through Kentucky Agricultural Finance Corporation (KAFC).
