We installed Howden Farm's  first photovoltaic system in 2005, this 1 kW pole mount system was one of the first PV systems in the country supported by USDA grant funding and the first in Sheffield Massachusetts.  In 2010 Howden farm added  roof mounted systems on separate barns with support from Massachusetts and Federal grant programs for farmers. The total capacity now is 12.04 kW which supplies almost 100% of the farm electricity  requirements. - See more at: http://www.bpvs.com/#sthash.2cb3Gpdm.dpuf

In contrast to many electric generation technologies, there is no combustion, no need to contain pressure. No noise, no dynamic vibrations, no lubrication or adjustments are needed. The fuel is abundant and free, there is no waste. With PV's technical sensibility, progressive cultural and ecological benefits attach and together define sustainability. Our customers are clean energy consumers and generators." -Christopher Derby Kilfoyle ©BPVS 2012- See more at: http://www.bpvs.com/#sthash.2cb3Gpdm.dpuf
