Have you a POULTRY FARM of laying eggs hens? Have you problems of EGGS PRESERVATION because your farm is OFF-GRID? Do you know that RENEWABLE ENERGY could be your solution? Conservation of fresh eggs Laying poultry farm selling eggs to ovo producers must be very careful about cold storage of eggs. According to temperature, an egg can …
Does your farm or your country house have problems with solar batteries? Did you ever had a blackout and stay in the dark? I will try to give some posts with practical solutions or trends. Electric storage batteries are expensive Isolated electrical systems based on the generation with small wind turbines or photovoltaic modules have a serious problem: the …

Solar panel We can see some plate black panels on the roofs of the houses. People know they are renewable or alternative energies, but few know exactly how it works. The term solar panel is confusing and unprofessional, because there are actually two very different uses of the energy coming from the sun: Photovoltaic module -> Electricity There are …
Rural Renewable Energies conversation Once upon a time an environmentalist (Ellen) took a walk on the field with an idealist (Ivan) when they met at a realistic (Ruth) accompanied by a financier (Fran). Ellen (ecologist) .- What a beautiful day! Birds sing and the forest is green and fresh. Unfortunately we will destroy biodiversity with oil and …
Why renewable energies are not suitable for cities? Because cities do not give the optimal conditions for Weather or environmental phenomena that are the basis of renewable energies: spacious, sun and wind in abundance, availability of land or forest resources. Let us examine: Sol (photovoltaic and solar thermal) A solar installation needs a wide space on the roofs, …
Energy is a basic need Access to energy should be universal, as other basic needs: food, education, housing, etc.. But rural areas, far from power line, does not have electricity. Or natural gas pipe does not reach. The rural dweller has to produce its own electrical or thermal energy, very expensive with diesel fuel. Public funds …
Renewable energies are great … Oh Yeah. They are wonderful in rural areas. They give energy independence, reduce CO2, are eco-fashion, are the future… Let’s face it. You, rural user, only install renewable energies when you really need energy, you have explored conventional energy sources (diesel generator, fuel boiler, etc.) and you have calculated renewable energy is cheaper. This …
I am interested in YOU, who live or work in RURAL areas with ENERGY problems
I want to hear your energy needs, especially if you’re not connected to the electrical grid, as well as meet and learn from your experiences on energy in agricultural processes. The blog is aimed at:
- Farmers and ranchers
- Forestry, fisheries and aquaculture
- Any person or group who lives in the country or works in rural activities without access to energy.
I am convinced that renewable energies are profitable when they are well adapted to agricultural and rural needs
You just have to delve into the consumption of each activity and the natural resources (sun, wind, biomass, etc) available in each area. We can obtain:
- Electricity: photovoltaic, small wind, small hydro.
- Heat: solar thermal, biomass, biogas.
- Fuels: biodiesel and bioethanol.
- Heat + Electricity + Cold: There are a variety of technologies and / or combinations of renewable energy to generate any need for energy.
I will publish in this blog small-scale renewable energy, economically viable, easy to install and especially suited to rural areas.
When are renewable energies profitable in agricultural or rural use?
This is precisely my goal in this blog, bringing together two different worlds that do not just see both sides: rural activities vs renewable energies.
I just want rural and agricultural users understand that some renewable energies may be the solution for your case. It should be great if you can explain your success story.
And I would like all renewable energy professionals or manufacturers realize the big rural market is ready to develop a lot in coming years, specially in isolated systems and agribusiness processes.
I’m satisfied with this. I hope to pique your interest with the same passion that motivates me to share how to improve the lives of farmers through renewable energy.
