The owner of a southern Manitoba dairy farm, Hans Gorter, is in the process of installing solar panels to make the farm ‘s annual consumption–net zero.

The project consists of 540 panels, installed on the 130-cow dairy farm in Otterburne. The farm is located about 45 kilometers south of Winnipeg.

The project is estimated to cost Mr. Gorter about $500,000. He will receive a rebate of over $175,000 through a Manitoba Hydro program.

It will generate close to 200,000-kilowatt hours of energy annually.

If everything works properly, the system will bring Gorter’s annual energy consumption to net zero.
