Renewable energy makes farming more sustainable and delivers a return on investment
Large roof areas, agricultural buildings are ideal locations for Solar PV and Solar Thermal systems. They don’t require planning permission, are easily installed and need minimal ongoing maintenance. For agricultural operations with a high energy requirement, such as refrigeration units, poultry housing, milking parlours, grain storage etc. matching this usage to the daytime generation maximises energy efficiency, so reducing the additional cost of importing energy from the grid. Battery storage also provides new opportunity for farmers to store excess energy to use as required or sell back to the grid when tariff rates are at their highest.
Indeed, many farmers now operate an energy business as a discreet costed enterprise as part of their diversified farming operation.
Fundamentally, as custodians of our beautiful countryside, we are certain farmers primary motivation is to reduce carbon and secure the future of our planet.
