A good number for solar farm cost per acre is typically $500,000 here in the U.S. You will find that typically a megawatt size solar farm system will need approximately five acres of land to be oriented and sited properly. This amount of acreage is also a good number if using any type of tracking systems on your panels to increase production levels is your goal. A one megawatt solar farm project will typically cost somewhere around $2.5 Million U.S. dollars and require a site of no less than about five acres. Building solar farms that have higher output rates while requiring less ongoing maintenance is what our company excels at.
The primary goal of every solar farm owner is to make sure that their income producing solar farms costs them less upfront when totally commissioned yet supplies them with more long term revenue to make their overall IRR greater than most. If you are just starting out with your research on solar farms you may want to visit the Solar Energy Industries Association site to learn more about the industry and how to team up with the better companies in this field.
