BeBa Energy specialise in the design and integration of Solar PV onto both agricultural land, as well as roof-mounted systems on agricultural buildings such as barns, chicken sheds and grain stores. From 10KW to 5MW systems, we can install the perfect solution for your needs - high-yield, short return on investment, with long term (20 years index linked) government backed payments at competitive prices.

For ground mount systems we are one of the only companies in the UK who operate a GAYK tracked pile driver, which ensures complete accuracy, and our use of such high-tech equipment allows us to install our systems in the most environmentally friendly manner, and in the fastest possible time.

We know that cost reduction is a big factor in the agricultural industry, and our solar PV solutions are designed to help you reduce the cost of your electricity, while giving the potential for you to generate an income through Feed in Tariffs. What's more, implementing renewable energy solutions will not only protect you against future energy cost increases, it's also a real boom for agricultural businesses who want to diversify and produce new income streams through alternative methods of farming.

With many large agricultural businesses operating processing buildings, it is also possible to review current technologies in lighting and present compelling reasons as to why to review the type of lighting you currently have as we are seeing paybacks through the enhanced capital allowance system of 2 to 3 years.

Common questions

What is the Feed in Tariff?

The Feed in Tariff, or FiT, is a government policy that was introduced in 2010. It’s designed to encourage the adoption of renewable energy, and rewards you for the energy you generate from a solar system, whether you use that electricity or not. What’s more, the income is actually guaranteed for 20 years, and goes up with inflation each year, making it a fantastic investment.

How do I get paid for export?

We start your installation with a full inspection of your site, along with an analysis of your energy usage. From this we approximate your energy usage and what we think you require in order to make solar viable for you. You may use lots of energy during part of the day and very little at other times - during high usage, you’ll use all of the energy generated, and during low usage any unused energy is sent back to the grid.

Any systems over 30kWp have the option to have an export meter installed (subject to energy provider) which measures how many kWh of energy are sent back to the grid, for which you will be directly paid every quarter. For systems under 30kWp you are automatically be deemed by your FiT provider to be exporting 50% of the energy you produce. You will get paid a set export rate for that energy, which will be included within your quarterly payments after your quarterly declaration.

Can I change my electricity supplier without affecting my FiT agreement?

Yes you can. In most cases you would leave your feed in tariff agreement with the original provider but move your energy purchases to anyone you choose. Although it is possible to change your FiT provider, the level of service and income doesn’t change from one provider to another, therefore usually there is no reason to do so.
