The Solar Farmers
A bit of background on 8760 Solar
The company was founded by two brothers (Ryan & Jason) who grew up as farmers. Their goal was to help farmers to use solar projects to save on taxes, control energy costs and create a new income stream for their clients. Coran & Leanne (a husband & wife team) liked the mission and the business so much that they invested in the company and partnered with them. Together we are helping the team grow so we can serve more farmers across the San Luis Valley region, Baca County and Yama County areas.

“We grew up farming crops and raising cattle, so we understand the challenges and excitement of being a farmer, rancher, or dairyman. The farm is still home for us and we often find our way back into a tractor.”
After farming, Jason managed and developed industrial sized Solar Farms. His expertise in Solar Re-Power as well as asset and development management, has gathered attention and he is invited annually to Solar Conventions as a guest speaker. Ryan began working on large scale solar projects and transitioned to focus on farms, ranches, and dairy operations. With farming as part of his life, it was a simple transition and allows him to continue to spend time on farms.

“We are an entrepreneurial husband and wife team who love to build businesses from the ground. In 2023 we joined forces with 8760 Solar on their mission to help more farmers achieve their solar goals. “
With over a gigawatt of combined solar experience, we have the knowledge and expertise to provide all the benefits of solar to our growers. By combining our two passions, each project is exciting for us and we view each project as our own. 8760 Solar was officially launched in 2019 when Jason and Ryan brought their years of experience, dedication and resources together to serve the Agriculture Solar market. Expanding the team in 2023 has been an exciting time for the team, and we can’t wait to work with more farms throughout Colorado.
