Do you have a Livestock Feedlot? Have you ever considered a Solar Power Feed Bunk Cover Shade
for your feedlot? With a clean energy solar system such this CAD Solar System design by Scotty
you will be not only providing cover and shade
for your livestock when they are feeding, it will generate income from the Sun for your operation.
The Solar Feed Bunk Cover Shade in these pictures is designed with American SunPower Solar Panels, covers 4000 sq feet, and is estimated to produce 59,680 watts of clean pollution free energy (based on 230w panels that produce 14.92 w/sq ft- (Other higher Output power producing solar panels are available-I used the 230w solar panels since they were already integrated into my computer drafting program from past Solar Projects I’ve designed. To get the most bang for the buck I recommend the 300 or 400 watt solar panels )
The following CAD designs are examples of the Solar Power Feedbunk Cover – Shade designed by Scotts Contracting-StLouis Renewable Energy that could be added to your existing structure or could be site built to fit your cattle feeding operation. This example uses my Fathers Missouri Beef Cattle Operation.
The Solar Power Feed Bunk Cover Shade
can be added to an existing beef cattle feedlot
such as the one pictured below.
If an existing Feedlot shading system is not already in place it is possible to design build a Solar Power Shade to fit over your existing feed bunks.
