Farmers in England who wish to install solar panels can now apply for financial support under round 2 of the Improving Farm Productivity grant
The grant – open to all farmers and horticulturalists – will begin accepting applications in early 2024, and will allow farming businesses to apply for support to cover 25% of a solar PV project.; the minimum amount of funding is £15,000 and the maximum is £100,000
The funding can be used for roof-mounted or irrigation reservoir-mounted solar arrays providing that the power is mainly used to run the farming operation. The funding cannot be used for ground-mounted solar systems, north-facing roofs or systems in heavily-shaded areas.
