Farm buildings particularly with large, un-shaded roofs typically present ideal conditions for generating electricity through the sun’s energy.

Generating your own electricity supply minimises the need to purchase power from your energy supplier and future proofs your farm against rising energy prices.  If you have a high electricity demand during the day, particularly during summer months you can make substantial energy cost savings.  Hence why solar is an ideal fit if you require power for cold storage of harvested produce, as you can align high power generation with high demand.

Committed to excellence, Forster Energy leads the way in solar best practice, delivering a comprehensive in-house service, from planning, product specification and design, to installation and after care.

We will work hard to add value by considering your current and future energy needs before tailoring the most cost effective solar plan to deliver the strongest financial benefit. Our systems have helped our typical client save 21% on their energy bill and receive an annual ROI of 18.2% for 20 years.

With rising energy costs, the continuing fall in the cost of solar, alongside government subsidies and widely available finance options – there is no better time than the present to invest in solar for your farm.

In partnership with NFU Scotland we are raising greater awareness of the benefits of solar power in helping farmers take greater control of their electricity costs. If you are a member of the Union you can benefit from our NFU Scotland PV support package worth over £2,000.
