Renewable Energy Projects
Many farmers have already considered renewable energy of some sort, whether this is growing non-food crops or harvesting the wind that blows across their farmland to make electricity.
More than a third of farmers are using wind, sun, farm bi-products or energy crops to produce clean energy and as more and more options continue to become available, it is important to give careful consideration to the longer term effects of some of the arrangements you may be putting in place. Many farmers may have been approached by energy companies wanting to utilise farm land, often by way of a long lease. This is an attractive option for some farmers as it can be an extra source of income. However, it is important to consider the terms of these Leases carefully and we can assist you in doing so.
