Solar Moonshot Grant Recipient

Townsend Family Organic Farm

Key West, Florida
"Going solar was a great option for our farm because we are located in the Florida Keys where there is an abundance of sun almost year round. We use hydroponics as our growing system which does require electricity to power the irrigation pumps. Using solar allowed us to become more environmentally friendly and self sufficient from power drops at our locations. We are highly supportive of any and all measures to mitigate agricultural impacts on the current climate crisis. We are very thankful to be recipients of the Solar Moonshot Grant which made our solar project possible."
