This is a great example of a public and private venture to enable a farm operation to improve its bottom line and help the environment.
Howard Henderson, USDA Rural Development State Director
Dynamic Energy, a fully integrated energy solutions provider, and the USDA celebrated the completion of a solar photovoltaic project at Sikking Farm, Inc. in Vineland, New Jersey. The 200-acre, privately owned New Jersey farmland and nursery received a Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) grant for approximately 25 percent of the project cost. Additional solar funding was provided by Farm Credit East, ACA located in New Jersey.
This 122.2kW Sikking Farms solar project consists of one rooftop, one carport and one ground mounted photovoltaic system. The project was designed, engineered and constructed by the Dynamic Energy team. With all three solar systems fully operational, it will generate approximately 98% of the electricity needed by the New Jersey farm for all of its operations.
Michael Perillo, CEO of Dynamic Energy, said, “Dynamic was thrilled to work with the USDA on this important project, and we congratulate Sikking Farms on their new solar system.” Farm Credit East is the primary agricultural lender in Southern New Jersey and worked in conjunction with Sikking Farms, USDA and Farm Service Agency to provide financing for energy saving ventures.
“Projects like these demonstrate our ability to help strengthen the economies throughout rural communities here in the Garden State,” added USDA Rural Development State Director Howard Henderson. “This project was directly responsible for saving 4 New Jersey jobs. This is a great example of a public and private venture to enable a farm operation to improve its bottom line and help the environment.”
