Premium Solar Pv for farmers

The best solar panels for farm environments

Why install solar PV on your farm?

Key benefits:

  • Cost savings: Cut your farm’s electricity bill dramatically.

  • Future-Proofing: Lock-in electricity prices and protect yourself from future electricity price hikes.

  • Tax Benefits: Solar panels qualify for accelerated capital allowances. This is worth 12.5% of the final investment cost to companies and up to 50% for sole traders.

  • Unbeatable paybacks: Expect free electricity for 30 years + with Solarwatt panels. With the addition of a TAMS grant, paybacks can be as little as two years for sole traders and 3-4 years for companies.

  • 60% grants available: Under TAMS 3 you could qualify for a 60% TAMS grant and Local Power will look after your application. Check your eligibility today. 

Farms that install solar PV systems can expect financial and environmental benefits. A typical solar PV system can supply a substantial portion of free electricity for over 25 years, or 30 years+ in the case of Solarwatt panels from Local Power. With the addition of a TAMS grant, paybacks can be as little as two years for sole traders and 3-4 years for companies.

Enhanced efficiency with battery storage

Combining your solar PV system with battery storage helps you maximise its benefits. Battery storage allows you to boost the self-consumption of your self-generated electricity. You can also charge off cheap night rate electricity.

Local Power installs premium Fronius and BYD battery storage solutions which have been consistently ranked among the best available in the market for efficiency and charging and discharging ability.
