A solar energy system installed by Vulcan Solar Power at your farm or rural business will substantially reduce operating costs for 30+ years, pay for itself in just 2-5 years, and generate a 10-year Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 20% or more.


Any farm or business that installs a solar energy system is entitled to substantial federal tax incentives that can effectively lower the cost of the system up to 50% in the first year.

  • 26% Federal Tax Credit. Businesses are entitled to a 26% federal tax credit on the entire cost of the solar energy system, and there is no application process or cap. Free money from the IRS!
  • Accelerated Depreciation. Businesses can depreciate 87% of the entire cost of the system in the first year at the federal level and 100% at the state level, which can reduce the effective cost of the system by another 20% or more.



The USDA offers grants for up to 25% of the total cost of a solar energy system to all agricultural producers and rural small businesses, which covers small businesses in the vast majority of Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. VSP will handle all of the paperwork for you, and with a USDA grant, your solar energy system could pay for itself in just 2 years and generate a 10-year ROI of 30% or more.
