We know farms are keen to diversify and increase revenue streams, and also to reduce energy costs. The great thing is that farms are usually well placed to install renewable technologies, killing two birds with one stone.
The NFU reported that they expected 30% of farms to have invested in renewable technologies by the end of 2012. Our experience as a member of the CLA suggests similar, if not greater interest. So there is a fair chance you’ve already considered installing a technology, or know someone that has.
Once we’ve established what your motivation to invest is, we can then look at the most suitable solution for you. For some people it is simple financial return they need, some farms are being squeezed by their supply chain to lessen their carbon emissions. Some are being crippled by increasing energy costs. Whatever the driver we’ll try and find a solution.
From a no obligation survey we can provide detailed quotes which show capital costs, return on investment, carbon reduction, income from feed in tariffs (FITs) or the renewable heat incentive (RHI), and any funding options that may exist.

- Wind Turbines
- Solar Thermal (to generate hot water)
- Ground or Air source Heat Pumps (to generate heat & hot water)
