Solar-powering farmers towards 2050 at Low Carbon Agriculture

HIT Energy Services will outline all the ways we are helping farmers and landowners maximise their solar gains, at Low Carbon Agriculture 2023. 

We will be exhibiting and sponsoring the solar conference as we meet existing customers and introduce our services to many more at the event in Stoneleigh on February 7 and 8. 

“The UK is committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with HIT Energy Services committed to playing its part,” said Simon Hopkins. 

“Low Carbon Agriculture is all about looking at the solutions and creating profitable and sustainable farming practices. 

“We believe our services – including site monitoring through our HIT Energy Guard, repowering, health checks and carbon credits can help them achieve this.”

Our team has developed a number of industry-leading platforms that are making solar an increasingly reliable form of energy. 

These are helping customers around the UK increase their gains by hundreds or sometimes thousands of pounds a month.

“Many farmers, landowners and businesses had solar panels fitted up to a decade ago and haven’t really thought about things like upgrading or maintenance,” added Simon. 

“But in many if not most cases, systems have aged or malfunctioned and are simply not working for you the way they should be. 

“Our comprehensive range of services ensure you can generate as much energy as possible – that you can use to power your operations, sell to the National Grid or sell the rights to as another way of reducing the UK’s carbon footprint.”

We passionately look after system owners based right across the country.

We are looking forward to outlining all of our different services at Low Carbon Agriculture, including our latest initiative. 

What’s new for 2023? – Sell the rights to your solar power 

You have heard of celebrities selling their image rights – what about selling the green rights to the solar that you produce? 

It is a very simple way for our customers to make money while helping everyone reduce their carbon footprint and live greener lives. 

This is the latest service we are offering to clients who have our industry-leading, award-winning HIT Energy Guard installed on their systems. 

What happens? 

With the security of having our HIT Energy Guard fitted, our team ensures you maximise what you produce from your system. 

You are then able to use it yourself to power your business or farm, or sell the excess that you don’t need. 

Through our latest initiative using our platform, a partner company of ours will buy the rights to your energy – paying you for every KWh they purchase. 

This is then turned into carbon credits that help businesses reach their green targets. 

The process is simple – we attach an additional meter to the monitoring technology and it tells us how many kWh are available to sell, and how much potentially these are worth. 

Why are we doing this?

The UK is aiming to become a net zero country by 2050. 

This means it wants to strike an overall balance between the amount of carbon that is emitted by the country, and the amount that is taken from the atmosphere. 

Businesses must play their part in this and prove they are as green as possible. 

To do this, they must offset their practices that emit pollution or are not so environmentally friendly. 

Switching to solar energy is one way to do this, as are carbon credits. 

How do we help? 

Our HIT Energy Guard has been leading the industry for a number of years, making solar a reliable form of energy for thousands of system users. 

If production drops, even for a short time, we are alerted and can fix any problem before it starts losing you money. 

This ensures systems are operating at 100% of their potential at all times, and has saved some of our customers hundreds or even thousands of pounds a month. 

By helping you to generate as much solar as possible, we also want to help you make the most out of it. 

Selling the rights to it could be the best way for you to do this. 

As well as generating more income for you or your business, this also helps others live greener lives and propels the UK towards a carbon neutral future. 

We look forward to seeing you at Low Carbon Agriculture.
