Solar panels are a bright idea for farmers

FARMERS looking for ways to use surplus land are being offered free advice on installing solar panels from this month (November, 2012) onwards.

Solar Systems says the renewable energy source can help farmers increase their income and the company is giving tips on how this can be achieved.

Phil Grabham, Managing Director of Solar Systems, which installs home and business panels, explained: "Solar power installations on agricultural land are a great investment and can provide substantial financial returns.

"The National Farmers' Union (NFU) has been encouraging farmers and growers to look into renewable energy. It has predicted that 15% of all UK electricity from renewable sources could come from the land by the end of the decade, which is fantastic news.

"We know that two of the main concerns for farmers are planning permission and financing for solar projects. Our team has more than 30 years' experience in the industry and will be available to offer advice to anyone thinking about installing solar panels."

The team at Solar Systems is asking farmers who would like to find out more to give the company a call. They are able to answer queries via email or Twitter too.

Phil added: "There are environmental benefits to using the technology too. Using PV panels promotes farms that wish to have a profile of being 'green' and friendly towards the environment."

Solar Systems is a specialist in solar technologies. The company has a wealth of experience in the design and installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) and thermal panels for homeowners and businesses.
