    Secure a long-term, predictable and dependable income for the next 30+ years

    Generate a significant new income, index-linked with no risk to you.
    A diversified income that requires minimal input from you, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
    Take an active role in the renewable energy revolution and enjoy a sustainable rental income for the next 30+ years.
    The stable rental income from a solar farm is favourably viewed by banks and lenders- and can help you to borrow as you build your business.

  • No risk and no cost to you- just upside

    The solar park is planned, developed, installed and maintained at absolutely no cost to the landowner- even your legal fees are covered, the only investment you need to make is time. And at the end of the solar farm's life, your tenant's responsibility is to remove all the solar farm equipment and return the land to agriculture.

    Continue farming the land

    In many cases, the best way to manage the land beneath the solar farm is to graze it with sheep. Subject to the investor you choose to work with, you could retain the right to graze the land and keep farming and benefit from a double income.

    Create room for biodiversity

    Likewise, there are great opportunities to boost biodiversity. Active habitat enhancements such as log piles, bird and bat boxes or bee hives. In addition, solar farms can be sown with wildflower seeds improving habitat for mammals.

    A sustainable business with local benefits

    Solar parks can help to create and sustain local jobs and services and provide ressources for schools. Moreover they produce clean, secure and local energy and become a long-gterm local business that can contribute to your community across its life.

    An active role in the fight against climate change

    The transition to renewable energy-including solar power-is the vital step we must all take to win the fight against climate change. You can take a decisive role to help the environment and improve the UK's energy security by choosing to go solar.

  • Solar farms - what makes a suitable site

    Suitable land

    • A site between 50 - 200 acres
    • Land should be relatively flat
    • Well screened by hedges and a good distance from residential property
    • Not in a valued landscape or near historic buildings.

    Limited distance to the grid

    The land needs to be within 1 mile of overhead electricity cables or an electricity substation with access from a main road suitable for HGVs.

    The agricultural grading should be medium to poor (grades 3 and greater)

    BMV classification: for solar only everything above 3 is suitable. Check the following link to find out the classification of your land

    Picture of Thomas G

    Annabel A., Dorset

    “We have a large farm but much of the ground is poor. We need to use a lot of fertilizer to get a decent crop and it is often a challenge to break even. What we do have a lot of is sunshine and for us a solar farm makes perfect sense. Leasing our land for solar means that we can count on a guaranteed income, without having to work the land so hard.”

    Thomas_West_wales

    Thomas G., West Wales

    “I wanted to modernise the farm to create a successful, sustainable business fit for 21st century. Alongside our organic beef herd, the solar farm is a really important business stream providing a regular long term income. Today we farm less intensively, leaving more space on the farm for wildlife - we think this is a sustainable way to farm - economically and environmentally.”

    Robert_Staffordshire

    Robert S., Staffordshire

    “With the changes to farming policy and the volatile markets in recent years, diversifying our farm is more important today than ever before. By choosing to lease part of our land for solar provides us with a dependable and secure income. It’s a valuable part of our business that helps to make sure we can continue farming for many years to come.”
