Sustainable growth

Agriculture

Diversify and expand

With changes to subsidies hitting hard and the ever-increasing pressure on your farming income, you’re probably considering how to diversify and create new revenue streams. As a UK-based supplier of renewable source power and related energy services to over 3,000 agricultural businesses, we have the experience and expertise to help you unlock these opportunities.

In addition, we’re working with the NFU to explore the viability of energy crops and giving over 2,000 independent, small-scale power generators a route to market. You could be one of them.



What we’re offering agriculture

Our solutions can help save you time, minimise your costs and create new revenue streams – all while reducing carbon emissions.

Our fixed-price supply plans provide renewable electricity and budget certainty, while our optimisation service delivers savings and maximises your returns. As one of the UK’s largest Power Purchase Agreement contractors, we can help you sell any excess self-generated power.
