Solar options for your farm

Grid Tied

Grid-Tied-Solar-for-FarmingSolar panels, inverter and wiring set up to generate power during daylight hours and export the excess back to grid. You use grid power when solar isn’t available.


Hybrid-Solar-for-FarmingHybrid systems include a home battery to store solar energy for use at night or during a power cut. Reduces your reliance on grid energy but it is still available as a ‘last resort’.

Worried about the cost?

Don’t be, before any decision is made we will fully outline the cost of the system, the savings it will generate, and help you arrange any finance required.

At SkySolar we are believers in owning your own system, not renting or leasing it. Options are available for either outright purchase or we can tailor a financial package to suit your cash-flow. In most cases the energy savings generated will balance the payments on the system installed
