The organic veggies and pasture we grow are not the only things soaking up the summer sunshine at Jericho Settlers Farm. We also have 6 photo voltaic solar trackers that convert solar energy into electricity to run the farm! It’s part of our commitment, and mission, to farm in a sustainable way. The trackers communicate with satellites to "track" the movement of the sun across the sky, rotating throughout the day to maximize the amount of sun exposure (just like a sunflower).
These trackers produce all the electricity the farm needs to operate. We use solar power to do everything on the farm, from passively heating our greenhouses to actively cooling our large produce coolers, to growing the vegetables and livestock pasture on which all our animals thrive. Our "solar egg" labels make sense now, don’t they?
