Company owner Ross Goatham said: “This project began in the summer of 2020 and sees solar panels installed on all of our available roof space both at Flanders Farm and also Howt Green Farm.”
“This is an important step for our business, as it is helping us to further reduce the carbon footprint of our growing and distribution operations.
“Renewable energy is a crucial component in the UK’s plans to be a carbon-neutral economy by 2050, and farming and the topfruit industry have an important role to play in helping the Government to achieve this.”
Shaun Beattie, director at BeBa Energy added: “Working in partnership with the team at Goatham’s to develop this project was a pleasure. If the UK is to achieve its ambitions of net zero by 2050, then business must play their part. This investment from Goatham’s shows just how seriously they take their responsibilities.”
