Oakridge Dairy Reduces Energy Usage 75%

Oakridge Dairy Farms in Ellington, CT has become one of the largest dairy farms in the state of Connecticut. The Bahler family, long time owners of the farm, recently decided to reduce their environmental footprint and lower operating costs by investing in solar panels that are currently being installed on the farm’s largest barn.

Seth Bahler contracted Earthlight to design and install a solar power system and energy-efficient lighting upgrades. Earthlight’s agriculture and solar design experience provided maximum returns through both solar and energy efficiency, and high quality products and services made them an ideal partner. Oakridge Dairy now taking advantage of net metering in CT, which was a huge part to making this project viable. The new rooftop solar power system now generates daytime electricity equivalent to powering nearly 40 homes. Combined with the lighting upgrades, the rooftop system is reducing Oakridge’s energy usage by 75%.
