Many farmers are now beginning to understand the potential of being able to use unproductive farmland to generate electricity. With electricity prices on the increase, farmers around the UK are searching for new ideas in reducing the costs of energy bills. Agricultural solar panels are now in great demand to provide the power needed especially for:-
- Grain drying
- Cold storage
- Milking machines
- Heating for chicken sheds and byres
Having agricultural solar panels installed can also earn an income from spare roof space while at the same time helping to cut down on CO2 emissions. Solar panels are now considered to be more cost-effective than having to spend cash on electricity grid upgrades.
Benefits of Agricultural Solar Panels
Installing agricultural solar panels will allow you to take control of your energy needs along with providing a number of other benefits such as:-
- Reducing electricity bills against rising energy prices
- Cutting carbon emissions and doing your bit for the environment
- Being able to sell excess power to earn additional income
- Maximising a good return on a solar panel investment by incorporating a 10% income from the Feed-in Tariff
Ground mounted solar panels can be installed almost anywhere on agricultural land while standard solar panels are ideal on the roofs of grain stores, cold stores, chicken sheds and farm buildings.
