80% of UK Farms Want Solar Roofs By 2013December 21, 2010
A recent survey conducted by solar century has found that 80 per cent of farmers said they want to have solar photovoltaics installed on their roof by 2013. According to the survey since the introduction of the Feed-in Tariff, over 80% of farmers have considered renewables.
Stephen Frankel, a farmer from Wadebridge said, “We installed solar PV on our barn roof this year, and immediately starting saving on our bills and earning extra income thanks to the Feed-in Tariff. Traditionally, farming revenue is quite seasonal, but now we’re making money by creating clean energy we have the peace of mind of another income, and we’re doing our bit reducing our carbon footprint. I’d recommend any farmer to consider this – our land brings us so much value, so why not our roofs?”
