Sheffield farm’s sunny outlook

A FARM is going even greener after signing up for solar energy panels.

Poplar Farm, Woodall, Sheffield, will have 40 panels of 250 watts each fitted on a south-facing barn.

In a year, the system, being fitted by Greenbuy Energy, of Dinnington, will produce enough energy to provide a typical household with all its electricity for 17 months - and it is estimated the investment will generate a total profit of £89,000 in five years.

It is Greenbuy Energy’s first contract with a farm.
