Solar Panels Farming & Agriculture

Solar panels for farms, landowners and the agricultural sector.

Solar panels for farms

At Green Building Renewables, we provide a complete service for agricultural solar panel installation, from design, supply, installation to on-going maintenance.

As electricity costs continue to rise, many farmers are turning to solar panels to reduce energy bills and maintain profitability. Farms offer extensive roof and land space, making them ideal locations for large solar PV systems that can offset high daily electricity consumption and protect businesses against future rises in electricity costs. The widespread adoption of solar panels in the agricultural sector, attests to their reliability and strong returns.

At Green Building Renewables, we help farmers harness the power of the sun and secure their future energy needs.

Financial benefits

Investing in and installing solar panels can offer significant financial and environmental benefits for farms. Just a few years ago, solar panels were considered a niche and experimental technology, but today, solar is the fastest growing energy source worldwide. Solar PV panels are now a mass-produced product, delivered at a cost-competitive price. In fact, as energy prices have increased year on year, the cost of installing solar has significantly decreased.

A typical solar PV system can provide free electricity for more than 25 years, with returns of more than 12% per annum and installation costs paid back within 6-8 years. These benefits make solar panels an attractive investment for farmers looking to reduce energy costs and increase profitability, while also reducing their environmental impact.

Is it still worth installing solar panels on my farm without the Feed-in Tariff?

Despite the removal of the Government Feed-in Tariff, the installation capacity of solar panels is expected to continue at the current rate or even increase in 2019. This is due to falling costs and increased awareness of the environmental and long-term economic benefits associated with installing solar panels.

With significant reductions in panel costs, increased panel efficiency, and rising energy costs, now is the perfect time to invest in solar PV.

Integrating solar PV with battery storage

Integrating your solar PV system with a solar battery storage solution is an excellent way to maximize the energy savings your solar panels generate and leverage additional benefits for your business.

By storing and using all the free electricity your solar panels produce instead of exporting it back to the grid, your business can enjoy even greater savings. Storing energy on-site ensures you can access the inexpensive solar electricity your panels have produced, even before the sun rises on those cold winter mornings.

Moreover, a solar battery storage solution can help reduce your dependency on the grid, giving you greater energy independence. During power outages, your business can continue to operate with stored energy, reducing downtime and ensuring productivity.

At Green Building Renewables, we provide turnkey solutions for solar PV installation and battery storage solutions, tailored to meet your business needs. With our comprehensive service, you can enjoy the full benefits of solar energy and take control of your energy costs.
