For Solar PV: A Grant is available up to 30% of the capital cost subject to TAM11 terms and conditions. For Non-VAT Registered farmers, through the VAT 58 Form, the VAT element can be reclaimed as a one-off payment and you also qualify for the accelerated capital allowance scheme. Non-VAT Registered Farmers you have access to Green Loans with your local credit union, our partner Flex-fi. and for Farmers who are VAT registered you have access to or tax-efficient asset financing.
For Biomass: Where you are burning large quantities of fossil fuel to generate heat-hot water you could have access to the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH). The SSRH is state support aimed at providing incentives for replacing fossil fuel heating with a renewable energy source (Biomass). With this scheme, you will be paid for every kWh of energy you produce from Biomass for a period of 15 years.
In addition to the purchase facilities available above, for the installation of Biomass, you have the additional option of an ESCRO where the system will be installed for free and you sign over the Tariffs to Eco Green Resources for a pre-agreed period of time. The benefits you will receive during this period are the ability to provide your heat- hot water for approx half what you are currently paying and at the same time reduce substantially your carbon footprint to help avoid carbon tax.
