FarmGen – Farm Generated Renewable EnergyGlanbia Ireland is proud to bring a bespoke renewable solar energy solution to Irish Farmers through our FarmGen initiative. This technology can help farmers grow their business sustainably into the future, while improving energy efficiency on farm and reducing bills.
Following rooftop installation, FarmGen’s Solar PV system will help power energy intensive processes on farm, reducing the costs of milk cooling, vacuum pumps and water heating. Combined these three processes account for around 80% of total milk parlour energy consumption.
This solar power solution is open to all farming sectors and sizes, with customised commercial packages available and importantly there are also options available for those who wish to install Solar PV in their homes to harness the power of green energy. Farmers who wish to register their interest can do so below.
Key highlights of FarmGen, solar powered energy include:
Solar PV panels will enable cost efficiency through reducing energy bills and powering farms through on-site renewable generation.
Smart meters will enable farmers to better understand their energy generation and consumption and how they can adapt behaviour to drive further savings.
