How Tempo Can Help The Farming Industry

Jonathon Gregory

With the pressure mounting on the farming industry from electricity costs increasing annually and now the recent milk price crisis, Farmers are finding it harder and harder to maintain their profit. If for example you produce and supply dairy or poultry products, then utilising specialist equipment to store these products could mean electricity is one of your biggest costs. Anyone would agree, that within any business, it is essential that to keeps costs to a minimum and save money wherever the possible through all the help available.

Tempo has now collaborated in order to create the best business propositions to date. With a fantastic power purchase agreement, businesses and farmers can now be offered free Solar PV systems allowing electricity costs to be cut dramatically at no cost at all.

Within this dramatic electricity cut, farmers could see themselves saving up to 50% on their energy bills as a result!

What is a Power Purchase Agreement?

Obviously not all farmers or business will have the upfront available funds to invest in Solar PV panels and installation, therefore a power purchase agreement provides the solution!

A power purchase agreement means that we can install the Solar PV panels for free providing we your business meet the qualifying criteria needed. We have now been given the funding to install Solar PV panels commercially, meaning it won’t cost you a thing.

A Power purchase agreement is normally arranged for a time period of 25 years with maintenance included at no extra cost.

Not only can a new Solar Power system allow you to save masses on your energy bills, but it can also increase your business worth and add to your green portfolio, enhancing your business position when supplying to clients looking for green and environmentally friendly supplies.

Example of How Solar PV Can Help Farmers

Worths Farm is a large arable farm in Lincolnshire, East Midlands. The farm consumes a significant amount of electricity throughout the year by running refrigeration equipment and grain dryers, particularly over the harvest season.

The Owner of Worth’s farm contacted a member of our team after catching wind that we now offered free Solar systems and passed the criteria to offer a 150 kw panel system power purchase agreement.

The 150 kWp Solar System, installed at no cost to the farmer provides discounted green electricity under a power purchase agreement. This particular farmer used all of the electricity the solar power systems offered which amounted to £12,500 a year off their energy bills.
