Small Organic Dairy Farm

CSPL - 4th October 2016

CPSL Group were invited to evaluate the energy usage and requirements of a small mixed, arable, dairy and organic chicken farm.

CPSL Group were invited to evaluate the energy usage and requirements of a small mixed, arable, dairy and organic chicken farm.

 

The ’Green‘, credentials of the farm are central to everything that is done on the farm.  The addition and implementation of renewable energy was simply a natural progression along with the general policy of the whole farm.

 

Energy overheads are constantly rising and the ability to farm the wind and sun seemed to be a natural progression along the organic lines of the farm.  All farming has to keep pace with technology to maintain the standards expected from clients and if this can improve the value and quality of the product then it is a win/win.

 

A cutting edge approach to efficiency and need to reduce overheads led to the installation of a 50kw wind turbine and then solar panels.  The ability to store all of the power and use it when needed rather than export it and then buying it back led to the holistic approach to energy storage and maximisation of the value of the power produced from renewable resources.

 

The local community benefit from the excess energy being put back into the local Grid which assist in the provision of renewable energy to the local community.

 

The eventual ambition is for the farm to become completely energy self-sufficient.  This will reduce energy demand in the area with the concomitant benefit to the supply of energy to the local community.   The reduction of fossil based fuel demand on the farm and the use of renewable energy can be seen by customers as an ongoing commitment to the quality of their product.
