There are many options within agriculture for saving energy and especially generating your own power.
Anaerobic Digestion is a natural process where plant and animal materials (biomass) are broken down by micro-organisms in the absence of air. This produces biogas which can be combusted to provide heat, electricity or both. The remaining “digestate” contains valuable nutrients like potassium and nitrogen, it can be used as a fertiliser and soil conditioner.
There are other options for using your land to generate your electricity. With enough space to harness the power of the sun and the wind Solar PV and Wind Turbines are nicely suited to an agricultural environment. You may also consider our Quadgen Steam Biomass Boilers which can generate heat and power. Whatever method you use the power can be exported back into the national grid if required, generating you an extra source of income.
You may use extensive lighting as part of your agricultural operation, Northern Utilities can offer a wide range of Energy Efficient Lighting creating savings of up to 80%.
Farms can run a large range of appliances, Voltage Optimisation ensures that they only receive the voltage they require, decreasing your energy spend and increasing the lifespan of your equipment.
