Ever wondered how solar power is revolutionizing nature and wildlife conservation? Today, we’re diving into some awe-inspiring examples that show how off-grid solar is not just good for your wallet, it’s a game-changer for the planet!

  1. Agriculture Meets Solar: University Test Crop Site, AZ

Let’s start with a blend of agriculture and solar innovation at a government-operated site in Cordes Lakes, Arizona. This working ranch doubles as an agricultural test site for a local university. NewGrid didn’t just install solar panels; they engineered a system that caters to both the irrigation needs and the energy requirements of the ranch staff. Imagine, sustainable farming powered by the sun, making strides in both conservation and agriculture​​.

  1. Powering Wonders: Grand Canyon Tourist Attractions

Next stop: the iconic Grand Canyon. With numerous remote overlooks and observation points, powering these spots sustainably was a challenge. Enter NewGrid, with their implementation of a robust 400 kilowatt-hours lithium battery system, complemented by solar, communications, and power distribution upgrades. This project ensures that visitors can enjoy the majestic views without compromising the canyon’s natural beauty​​.

  1. Ranch Living, Solar Style: A Privately-Owned Ranch in New Mexico

On the tri-state border of Arizona, New Mexico, and Mexico, there’s a ranch that’s been off-grid for decades. NewGrid rejuvenated this property with a modern solar and containerized power system. Imagine an entire ranch, from the living quarters to the operational areas, humming seamlessly on solar power. This is off-grid living at its finest, blending tradition with innovation​​.

  1. Iconic Views, Solar-Powered: Horseshoe Bend Visitor Center, AZ

Horseshoe Bend in Arizona is a natural marvel, and keeping its visitor center powered without harming the environment is crucial.
