Agricultural

As a small business in Wisconsin, we understand the value of our state's farming community. North Wind has helped many farms acquire the long-term energy security solar provides. Whether you're an organic CSA farm, dairy farm or greenhouse, we can show you how to make your project economically viable and strengthen your business for many years to come. There are a number of incentives available for agricultural projects and North Wind can help secure these funds for your project by determining your eligibility, as well as writing and submitting grant applications.
