A’s and O’s Farm

October 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm - October 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

A’s and O’s farm has been using solar energy to grow plants and generate electricity for over 30 years. The first PV panels were installed in 1991 to power an upstairs office, and the 1971 Honda car was converted to electric power in 1993! We are now on the 4th generation of solar installs, having just upgraded our 3.6kW array to a 5.5kW array that will likely provide ALL of our electricity. The farm also features solar water pumping, a solar greenhouse cooling system, a primitive geothermal cooling system, and numerous other sustainable or energy efficient features. Tom is an engineer-turned-farmer and Valerie is a solar consultant, so visit our home to learn about solar technology and how you can make it work for you. Bring your EV and we will fill-er-up with sunshine using our Level 2 charger!
