NFU: Solar farms help deliver secure income to farmers

 

Solar farms help “deliver secure income to farmers”, according to Guy Smith, vice president of the National Farmers’ Union.

Smith said that solar farms help farmers insure against “volatile weather and commodity markets” whilst simultaneously providing “good environments for wildlife and pollinators.”

Smith made the comments in support of the new study being launched by Lightsource Renewable Energy, Moulton College and the University of Northampton.

Dr James Littlemore, senior lecturer in land and environmental management at Moulton College said that he hopes the new study will provide solid information for farmers considering investing in on-site renewables.
