How Ohio farmers are saving, gaining with solar

Reporter Todd Hill writes about Ohio farmers’ growing use of solar power in the April 12 Mansfield News Journal. He talks to, among others, Eric Romich, leader of CFAES’s Energize Ohio program, and Crawford County farmer Rick Niese, who has 200 solar panels on one of his barns.

“As of now, we’ve never received a power charge since we’ve put these in, so everything is apparently doing what it’s supposed to,” Niese said in the story. “If we had to do it again, we would do it. I’ve talked to people who said, even if there was no help out there with the government, they would still do it.” Give it a read.
