Kirriemuir Farm is a perfect example of how solar can work for your dairy farm. The installation was completed October 2018. Since the system has been up an operational the dairy farmer has managed to move particular loads to a more central part of the day taking advantage of any excess energy that is not used for the refrigeration or effluent pump. Fronius Solar.web monitoring allows the customer to see both the production of solar and the consumption of energy on his farm.
