Bolnisi, Georgia – Innovation Energy has recently completed the installation of a 278.16 kWp solar power system at Savaneti chicken farm in Bolnisi municipality, Georgia. The roof-mounted system consists of high-efficiency solar modules from DAS Solar and inverters from Hopewind.
The new solar power system is expected to supply a significant portion of the energy needs of the chicken farm. By switching to solar, Savaneti aims to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, cut electricity costs, and increase the sustainability of their operations.
Solar power is a perfect match for agriculture applications like chicken farms. By locking in low-cost solar electricity for decades, farms can better plan for the future and invest more into their businesses instead of unpredictable utility bills.
The Bolnisi region receives abundant sunlight year-round, making it an ideal location for solar energy production. The modular nature of solar power also allows farms to start small and expand their systems over time as needed.
For Savaneti specifically, the on-site solar energy will provide reliable power for ventilation, lighting, feeding systems and egg collection operations. Solar can even provide energy for heating chicken coops during colder months.
In addition to the direct benefits for the chicken farm owners, this project also supports Georgia’s renewable energy goals. The government has initiatives to increase solar capacity across the country and reduce dependence on imported fuels. Solar projects like this demonstrate the viability of solar energy for powering farms and rural businesses in the country.
