Solar Power For Farms
The micro generation of electricity using solar panels on farms has been in the news a lot recently and likely you have seen at least one installation of this technology on agricultural land and farm buildings in your local area. The current surge in interest in Solar Energy production on Farms has centred around the "Feed In Tariff" that pays for all electricity generated whether used or not.
The Feed In Tariff Explained
The Feed In Tariff is indexed linked to RPI, guaranteed in law for 20 years, and paid by the electricity companies. The tariff levels set mean that on average the return on investment is around 10-12% per annum. Larger scale installations can attract significant cost savings so the returns on larger investments are excellent.

Why Harness Solar Energy For Your Farm?
For thousands of years Farmers have been the experts at harnessing solar energy. Almost every form of agriculture involves efficiently converting the energy from the sun into forms of energy we need for life. So it's no surprise that farmers and landholders in the UK are beginning to realize the potential of using farm buildings or parcels of relatively unproductive land to generate electricity. There are already a number of solar farmers already reaping the financial rewards from this technology.

Solar Power FAQ
Will I have to get planning permission?
Not in the vast majority of cases. However if you want your system ground mounted, if your property is part of a world heritage site, or is listed, then planning permission would likely have to be sought in advance. We will provide full assistance in completing applications and supplying any information requested to ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.
