Farm Solar Panels
Green Pulse Energy supply the highest quality Agricultural Solar PV systems. Which offers a massive return on investment and huge energy saving capabilities.
What Is Farm Solar PV?
- Agricultural Farm solar installation systems or solar farms are often huge systems that generate a huge amount of energy, income and savings
- Farming systems are usually ground mounted but can also be roof mounted
- Any farmland used for a system can still be used to raise livestock on
- Sell excess electricity back to the grid
- Help lowers carbon emissions generated by agricultural land
With the cost of business electricity increasing year on year, many farms are looking to sustainable solutions to reduce their energy bills and maintain profitability. With vast roofs and expanses of unused land, large commercial farms are ideal locations for large systems that can offset high daily electricity consumption and help protect businesses against future rises in electricity costs.
The most popular sustainable solution for farming is solar PV, and with the noticeable uptake in solar panels within the agriculture sector, this fact shows a true testament to the reliability and strong returns offered. Farmers are using their land in a way to suit their business.
Long-Term Electricity Generation
With no moving parts, solar panels have long warranties and provide predictable long-term electricity generation. Green Pulse Energy is partnered with the largest solar providers in the United Kingdom, specialising in Engineering, Procurement, and Management. Green Pulse Energy also offers an operations and maintenance contract on every system we install which safeguards your equipment against possible breakdowns or reductions in performance. Power from Renewable Energy has never been simpler to collect for years to come.
There is also a range of other cost effective and cost efficient solutions available for farms and agricultural businesses such as solar fields, Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)heat-pumps and solar thermal all of which, when coupled with incentives such as the RHI, can produce healthy returns and a reduced payback period.
We find that most farms have buildings that are suitable for a solar PV panel system, with the most typical type being the steel portal framed barn covered with fiber-reinforced cement sheeting.
Because of the usual 10 – 15° roof angle a solar PV system will still generate well even when the roof does not have the most favourable South facing orientation.
How Does It Work?
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity supplying a free source of electricity for your agricultural land/property.
