Fly Girl Farm is a women-run, 4-acre farm in Pescadero, CA, that gives young women the opportunity to experience running a farm. They grow vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers and received a $4,856 grant to purchase photovoltaic solar panels, a charge controller, a battery bank, and an inverter.
After experiencing some shipping problems, Fly Girl was able to install the new solar-powered system.
“We successfully completed the installation of a photovoltaic solar array, charge controller, battery bank, and inverter to power our small farm office and workshop space, as well as our intern housing. This off-grid energy system now meets the needs of our small and growing farm. We’re elated!” —Airielle Love and Kaeleigh Carrier, owners
