Farm Finance for Renewable Energy

Image

For many farmers, diversifying income and finding ways to reduce their costs will enable them to weather the economic and political changes ahead.

Aside from traditional farming diversification such as glamping sites, shops, cafes, there is the chance to venture into renewable energy and save money. Sadly, the UK is currently far from set to achieving the UK Government target of net zero emissions by 2050. Consumer and supplier behaviour is shifting, with an uplift in desire for goods with clear provenance and from a sustainable source. 

Retailers are facing calls to reduce their Carbon Footprint, public concern for biodiversity, climate change, and the environment is helping to fuel this, forcing companies to look for ways to improve their credentials and sustainability. In time, the whole supply chain will need to demonstrate their green credentials in order to secure contracts and customers. It could be argued that agribusiness has previously been unfairly treated in terms of the environmental issues facing the country, but the pressure to reduce carbon footprint is now felt by all industries.

Most farms have the ability to utilise renewable energy, for example, heat pumps to provide heating for buildings, solar panels or anaerobic digesters to supply electricity. These solutions save outgoing energy costs whilst appealing to supplier and consumer appetite for sustainability.

Benefits of renewable energy for farms:

  • Reduce carbon footprint
  • Self-sufficient energy supply
  • Not reliant on one source of energy
  • Save money on rocketing energy tariffs
  • Boost green credentials, securing contracts and customers
  • Lead the way in Britain’s path towards a greener future


Farms, more than other industries, have the natural resources to take up renewable energy, we believe that farmers are naturally entrepreneurial and have a fantastic opportunity to show that farming is part of the solution. Mulberry Farming is here to support farms source finance for these valuable projects.
