Solar Panels for Farming & Agriculture

At Callidus, we realise that almost every form of farming and agriculture requires energy from the sun to create the everyday essentials we have come to rely upon. By working with customers in the Agricultural Sector, we offer the opportunity to further harness solar energy through high quality power alternatives throughout the UK.

Farms and agricultural facilities rely on many types of heavy machinery and complex equipment to keep daily operations running. Everything is dependent on a constant and steady source of power, from refrigeration warehouses to grain stores and even just interior lighting.

By choosing Callidus, we help provide that power with our reliable solar panel systems with optional battery storage. We can easily install solar panels on any farm or agricultural facility with the utmost care and minimal disruption with our expert installers.

Solar Energy System Quote Devon

Solar Energy for Farming & Agriculture

The typical farm or agricultural facility often has large amounts of roof space that remains empty and underutilised. Rather than letting it remain unused, Callidus offer a more effective energy solution. Opting to switch to solar energy can result in cheaper electricity when compared to paying for power from the grid.

Many agricultural buildings already have a 10-15° roof pitch, a prime positioning that can generate significant amounts of power even if the roof is not south facing. As well as enjoying the benefits of cheaper energy bills, farms and agricultural facilities and stay in control of how much energy they produce and how it is used.

Whether near to us in Newton Abbot in Devon or based further afield, we will happily assist any farm or agricultural facility in utilising the benefits of solar panels and renewable energy. As well as offering significant financial benefits, solar panel systems can also help reduce carbon emissions, making them the ideal environmental choice.

Site Visit & Survey

Installation

Site Visit & Survey

The first step is to arrange an initial meeting to allow us to gather information about the farm or agricultural facility in question and how it uses energy.

We will visit the site to get an informed idea of any requirements or environmental factors that need to be considered. Each of these will affect the system’s design, from the physical space available to the property’s location in relation to the sun.

After the initial price and design have been agreed upon in principle, the next step is for us to conduct a full site survey to confirm the details and make any necessary adjustments to the design. We will ensure all permissions are in place and then produce a project plan before commencing with installation for the farming or agricultural facility.

Devon Quotes For Solar Panels

Installation

When installing a solar panel system for farms and agricultural facilities, the first step is to fix the mounts that will support the solar panels themselves. Subject to the requirements of the individual property, we can use either roof ground mounts or flush mounts.

Depending on the space available on the farm or agricultural facility, large scale installations of solar PV panels on the ground may be possible. To ensure optimal performance, solar panel systems are best installed in a south facing direction for maximum exposure to the sun. Still, east and west facing can also be sufficient.

Battery Storage

We can also connect the solar panel system to the designated battery storage if necessary to the project. With large amounts of heavy machinery and necessary appliances within farming and agricultural facilities, battery storage can be ideal for the solar panel system.

With wholesale gas constantly increasing in price and affecting the direct cost of electricity, battery storage provides an attractive alternative for farms and agricultural facilities. Rather than selling excess energy back to the grid for SEG payment, storing the energy for your own use can be more cost effective.

Testimonials

Happy Customers

The guys at Callidus were all fantastic. We had lots of questions before we had our solar power system installed, and all our many emails were answered very efficiently. The on site team did a really tidy job, and went through how we would use the system. We were very apprehensive about having an off grid system, and had different companies come to quote for the job. We went with Callidus because of the whole package that they offered, which includes their after sales help. We are very happy with the set up and it fulfils all that we asked for, very happy bunnies.

Maxine Heard

We live off grid in Cumbria and wanted to upgrade our electricity supply. We contacted Callidus and they were very happy to work with us. With excellent two way communication they designed the perfect system for us which is easily expandable if we should need it in the future. They were happy to design the system and supply us the parts for us to install ourselves. They programmed the system and were on the end of the phone to help with installation and getting the system up and running. Their after sales service is excellent. It has improved our quality of life no end.

Jack Beach

Fantastic customer service! Such incredibly helpful staff. Can’t rate them highly enough. Highly recommend this company. So helpful and really fast service. I spoke with Chris and Dave at a time when other staff where out and they went above and beyond to help.

Isobel Nancarrow

The entire team at Callidus, from the top to the bottom, are amazing. Knowledge, support, passion to place the customer and their needs at the centre of the process, throughout all phases. Clear explanations with realistic expectations; no over inflated figures to close out a deal. I am so satisfied with their approach that I have already completed an expansion of my system; NOT because it didn’t perform as promised, but in fact we are generating more than expected so have increased the battery storage!!

Marcus Rowe

I have just had an off grid solar system fitted by Steve and his team. It has been a completely stress free experience. Everyone was so professional, helpful and obliging, kind and friendly. I would recommend Callidus to anyone.
