AN INITIATIVE that provides a range of renewables and energy efficiency services to help reduce environmental impact and increase farm profits is being launched for NFU members.
The Farm Energy Service will offer advice and guidance on a range of issues including solar panels, wind energy, grid connections and energy contracts.
It will also provide assistance with legal queries, planning, finance and insurance.
Benefits include a free initial survey, access to an energy contract finder service, and a discounted fee structure.
The partnership sees the NFU teaming up with renewable energy specialists Fisher German and energy efficiency and contract management experts Farm Energy.
NFU president Peter Kendall said the creation of Feed-in Tariffs and Renewable Heat Incentive schemes had sparked great interest in renewable energy.
