Working together for a brighter, greener future for all farmers
Caplor Energy are delighted to announce a new commercial partnership with Wynnstay as their recommended partner for renewable energy advice and installations for their valued agricultural customers throughout England and Wales.
Wynnstay is a leading supplier of agricultural products and services, with the ability to offer the whole package to farmers. Spanning three main divisions; Feed, Arable and Country Stores, customers can access all the necessary farming inputs through a variety of distribution channels.
The partnership will provide Wynnstay’s extensive customer base of farmers and growers with the opportunity to generate and store their own renewable electricity on their farms or at home and save money by installing green technology with a trusted installer. Wynnstay is an ideal partner for Caplor Energy to not only help farmers to reduce their carbon footprint, but also provide excellent financial returns and reduced ongoing energy costs at a time when margins are particularly tight.
Neil Evans, Managing Director, Caplor Energy said: “We are thrilled and excited to be working in partnership with Wynnstay. Their values and culture blend well with ours and we look forward to being able to help Wynnstay customers in the agricultural community to deliver a brighter, more sustainable future through renewable energy”
Based on clear climate change evidence and targets to reach net zero emissions by 2050, a lot of farmers are now thinking about the social and environmental impact of their activities in addition to the economic benefits and overall business profitability. Today, it is much easier for farmers to make the right choices to reduce their bills, protect themselves from future energy rises and also demonstrate a commitment to carbon efficiency and longer term sustainability.
But, what many farmers may not realise is that by installing renewable energy solutions such as solar PV, renewable heating, battery storage or solar thermal, it could actually be the best investment they will ever make. With rising energy costs, payback periods for renewable energy systems can be as quick as 3-4 years. When you add that to ongoing energy security and a potential 40 year lifespan on solar PV systems for example, it increasingly makes economic sense to consider the change.
What we are seeing now is that it’s not as hard as you may have thought to contribute towards the country’s sustainability goals and make changes that can reduce your impact on the environment. Making the right decisions can actually be good business for your farm. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to be sustainable, we just need to play our part with a hugely increased sense of urgency.
