If you operate poultry or dairy farms, it’s likely that energy is one of your biggest costs for running your farm. Similarly, farms that need specialist equipment to chill/store produce such as vegetables and grain will also have the same concerns, with these costs – increased annually by the energy companies – threatening your profit margins.
With many farms not having available funds to invest in a solar PV installation, a power purchase agreement (PPA) will allow you to take advantage of a free solar PV system and then purchase back the electricity generated on-site at a pre-agreed rate, typically around half of what you pay your current energy supplier.
A PPA is commonly put in place for a 25 year period with maintenance of the system also provided at no cost throughout the term.
A free solar PV system will also enhance your green credentials and give your farm a better position when supplying to retailers that are campaigning for greener supplychains.
