Secure an additional source of income for your farm all year round with solar PV. Solar PV panels could be silently generating your own electricity, helping you to reduce your electricity bills and earn hundreds in extra income from government ‘green incentives.’ Many farms across Northern Ireland are installing solar PV, so sign up and save today.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are designed to convert the sun’s energy into electricity to power your businesses lighting and equipment.
All solar PV cells have two layers of semi- conductor material, one positively charged and one negatively charged. When light shines on the semi-conductor, the electric field across the junction between these two layers causes electricity to flow, generating the DC (direct current). The greater the intensity of light, the greater the flow of electricity.
A solar PV system doesn't need bright sunlight in order to operate and can generate electricity even on cloudy days. Due to the reflection of sunlight, days with slight cloud can result in higher energy yields than days with a completely cloudless sky.
This example might help to explain your investment:

The installation and commissioning of your system
All of the paperwork
We can pay you your incentives each year for 20 years.
We guarantee the quality of our equipment and workmanship. Our installation partner is MCS approved and a member of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC). Your PV system also comes with a 25 year performance guarantee and a 10 year warranty on the panels.
Your investment works in 3 ways:
ROCs are a government incentive paid on the generation of your solar PV system. You’ll earn an income from your ROCs for 20 years. We will register your system with Ofgem and pay you each year depending on the amount of electricity your system has generated and the number of ROCs issued.
The current ROC unit price for generators up to 50kw is 3.91p/kWh
You’ll be generating your own electricity so by using this you’ll notice a reduction in your bill. Try to use as much of the electricity as you’re generating it to maximise your savings.
You’ll get paid for any electricity that you generate but don’t use and export back to the grid.
The current single rate export tariff is 4.01p/kWh
