E4environment can help you through the minefield of information on renewable technologies, allowing you to make a refined, and informed decision. A supplier will only tell you about their product, but we can offer impartial advice about the strengths and weaknesses of different types of renewable energy and are not affiliated with any technology supplier (although we have spent considerable time researching reliable suppliers that use proven technology).
Uptake of renewables is on the rise in the private sector and, with the availability of funding and grants, the opportunities to embrace new technology are plenty.
The government introduced Feed in Tariffs (FITs) in April 2010. This scheme introduced a generation tariff which pays a sum of money for any energy generated even if it is used by the site where it is generated. Any extra electricity that is generated and not used can be sold back to the grid.
Since the activation of financial incentives, growing numbers of business owners are keen to get involved.
WRAP is offering a grant of up to £10,000 per farm to create a business plan that will investigate the potential of developing AD on their farm.
The farm will be required to contract a suitably qualified person to carry out the study and develop the business plan using the templates and guidance provided by WRAP. E4environment have successfully completed feasibility studies that have been approved by WRAP under this grant scheme. If you would to find out more or discuss an application please contact George or Nicky.
