Tackling climate change at Low Carbon Agriculture 2022

The HIT Energy Services team will showcase how solar can play its part in tackling climate change at Low Carbon Agriculture 2022.

It is a vibrant new business event aimed at forward-thinking farmers, landowners and industry operators, which takes place in March.

HIT Energy Services are sponsoring the solar conference with Paul Parkinson, customer engagement manager presenting clever ways to increase revenue from existing systems.

“The UK government wants to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050,” said customer engagement manager -Paul Parkinson-  of HIT Energy Services.

“The agricultural sector is in a great place to be a key part of the solution through the use of renewables.

“It’s something we have passionately believed since launching our company and are looking forward to meeting more farmers and figures from the sector to spread our solar revolution further.”

One of the main things the team will be discussing with Solar PV owners is how they can play their part in addressing the current energy crisis by selling the excess they don’t need.

Because of a lack of supply, wholesale prices have been pushed up by as much as 250%, leading to firms going bust and consumers paying more.

Paul added: “Traditionally the price for exporting excess to the National Grid has been quite low, but last year we started looking into how Solar PV owners could make the most of energy they don’t use.

“We have now got more than 150 of our customers enrolled on exporting schemes.

This is the latest service we are providing, to go alongside our free health checks of Solar PV systems.

When our engineers carry this out, we can give a valuation of export tariffs, and how much the system owner could generate from excess energy.

Through our HIT Energy Guard, we can also monitor performance 24/7, meaning if performance ever drops again, even for a short time, we can fix it – this has saved some owners hundreds or even thousands of pounds a month.

Our work has been recognised with a string of accolades – at Lamma 2020, we scooped the online innovation award, while we also beat hundreds of other products to be ranked seventh in the Midlands Tech 50 list.

Paul added: “Solar has such a huge part to play in tackling climate change and we want to make sure we have tailored services to allow everyone to make the most of it.”

Low Carbon Agriculture 2022 will explore ways to address climate change through renewable energy and the implementation of low carbon technology.

Formerly the Energy & Rural Business Show, the event has relocated to NAEC, Stoneleigh in Warwickshire, and takes place on 8 and 9 March.

We are looking forward to meeting friends and clients there and introducing more people to our pioneering services, enabling them to make the most of solar.
