The Costs of Solar Panels for Farms

For example, there are depreciation benefits that can cut the initial solar investment costs for farms installing solar panels. A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is another popular way for farms to finance solar panels.

Here’s an idea of how much installing a solar PV system might cost your farm:

What Are the Benefits of Installing Solar Panel Systems for Farms?

From increased energy independence to improved public perception,
there are many benefits to installing solar panels on your farm:

Positive payback period ROI

Cost savings and ROI

Farm operations are notoriously energy-sapping. Thankfully, solar panels can significantly reduce energy costs over time and provide a return on investment (ROI).

Tax incentives and depreciation

The UK government can help farmers offset the initial installation costs, improving the financial viability of fitting agricultural solar panels.

Energy independence

Energy independence

By generating your own electricity, solar farms can pretty much cut out external energy providers and their reliance on the national grid. This also mitigates the risks associated with energy price volatility. Plus, if you generate electricity in a surplus, you may be able to sell the excess energy for a profit, further reducing your electricity bills.

Increased property

Solar panel installations can enhance the value of agricultural properties, making them more attractive to potential buyers.

Increased property value
Maintenance and durability

Optimised land use

Combining agricultural activities with solar system installations (agrivoltaics) can ensure better use of land. This allows for simultaneous crop and energy production.

Improved public opinion

When you become a solar farm, you’re promoting environmental sustainability. In turn, your operations look more ethically sound to the public.
