Benefits of Solar PV for Agriculture
Agricultural businesses have always been experts at harnessing the power of the sun, so it’s no wonder that land owners and farmers have been quick to realise the benefits of using their agricultural buildings or parcels of underused land to generate electricity, reaping financial rewards from ‘solar farming’. However, the benefits of solar PV go much further than that.
A rural location means that ‘solar’ farmers enjoy greater independence from the national grid, giving them greater control over energy costs, protection from power outages and the added potential of battery storage systems for storing surplus energy. Finally, as the demand for locally sourced and sustainably produced produce grows, so does the need for low carbon energy and reduced greenhouse gases.

Solar Power FAQ
Do I need 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 would advise when this was the case, and while you would have to seek such permission we will of course provide full assistance in completing applications and supplying any information requested to ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.
