The sun’s rays have always been the foundation of farming – literally giving crops the energy they need to grow. But a USDA program is now matching up farmers with grants and incentives to help them harvest a new crop – solar-powered electricity.

Georgia pecan farmer Trey Pippin explains how he was matched up with a local utility and solar-panel maker Suniva to build a solar array powerful enough to power dozens of homes.
