Battery Storage for Agricultural Businesses

POWERED BY HAFOD RENEWABLE ENERGY

Experts in Battery Storage

The integration of solar panels and advanced battery storage systems is revolutionising the way UK farmers harness renewable energy.

Solar panels capture clean energy during the day, and battery storage allows surplus energy to be stored for use when it’s needed most. This powerful combination reduces grid dependency, cuts costs, and significantly elevates energy sustainability and efficiency for farmers across the United Kingdom.

Having partnered with leading brands like GivEnergy and Tesla, we offer advanced installation services to empower agricultural businesses with the advantages battery storage. Make the most of renewable energy, reduce costs, and enhance your farm’s sustainability with our cutting-edge solutions.

Key Benefits of Battery Storage for Agriculture

Energy Independence

Store excess electricity generated during the day, providing autonomy from the grid.

Clean Energy Reliance

Rely less on fossil fuel-based utility power, therefore contributing to a more environmentally sustainable future.

Continuous Power

In case of power outages, battery systems are fitted with backup gateways that ensure your essential equipment and lights remain operational.

Economic Savings

Depending on your utility's net metering policy, a solar-battery system can further reduce your electricity expenses, complementing the savings from solar panels alone.

Versatile Installation

Our batteries can be installed both indoors and outdoors, ensuring flexibility in placement.

Warranty and Longevity

Our batteries come with a 10-year warranty and have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years, providing long-term reliability.

How Does Battery Storage Work?

Battery storage systems play a crucial role in the integration of solar panels and the optimization of renewable energy on UK farms. These advanced systems operate on scientific principles that offer both efficiency and sustainability. Here’s how they work: 

Energy Storage: Battery storage systems are equipped with lithium-ion batteries, which store excess electricity generated by solar panels during the day. This surplus energy is converted and stored as chemical energy in the batteries. 

Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC): When energy is required for farm operations, the stored chemical energy is converted back into electrical energy. An inverter ensures the transition from direct current (DC), as stored in the batteries, to alternating current (AC), which is compatible with most farm equipment. 

Energy Use: The converted AC electricity can now power your farm’s machinery, lighting, and other electrical appliances. The stored energy provides a continuous power supply, ensuring essential equipment remains operational even in the event of a power outage. 

Complementary to Solar: Battery storage systems work seamlessly with solar panels. During sunny days, surplus solar energy not immediately used is stored in the batteries. At night or on cloudy days, when solar energy production is limited, the stored energy is utilised, reducing grid dependency. 

Independence and Versatility: Battery storage systems offer energy independence, as you rely less on fossil fuel-based utility power. They can function in tandem with solar panels or as standalone systems. Additionally, they can complement other energy-efficient technologies, such as heat pumps, to further enhance your farm’s sustainability.
