UK - Countrywide have announced the launch of a major new venture within its rural supply business that now gives the company a prominent position in the UK farm renewable energy sector.

Delivering a full range of renewables from solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to biomass boilers, wind turbines, anaerobic digestion systems, and specific solutions for poultry farmers including heat exchangers, the new Countrywide Renewable Energy business offers a complete renewables service that includes initial consultation, surveying, installation and grid connection, as well as a first class aftercare service.

Speaking at the Royal Welsh Show launch event, Countrywide’s chief executive officer John Hardman said: “The new business brings ten years expertise in farm renewables together with our extensive customer network. As a result we anticipate becoming a leading farm and landowner renewable energy company in the UK within 18 months. It’s a very positive development for Countrywide and our customers.

“Farmers are experiencing rapidly escalating energy costs,” he added. "Investment in renewable projects enables farmers to gain control of their energy bills as well as making excellent financial returns. The Feed-in-Tariffs for solar PV have really stimulated farmers' interest. The impending introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive is another great opportunity for farmers to replace fossil fuel dependence and at the same time save money.”

Mr Hardman added: "We assess each farm individually and recommend the optimum solution, or combination of appropriate renewable projects."
