Bolshan Farm, Friockheim

Angus arable and potato farmers Ralph and Gary Smith of Bolshan Farm, Friockheim installed a 192 panel, 49.92kWp array on the south facing roof of one of his storage sheds. The system is providing power for potato cold storage, grain drying as well as general farm supply. The Smiths are using more than 50% of the 44,000kWh of electricity generated by his solar array. Therefore the system is set to payback within five years, and reap a 24% annual return on Gary’s investment for the next twenty years.
