Rising electricity prices and new additional charges are adversely affecting the financial situation of many farmers. Investing in renewable energy sources is an effective method that can reduce bills In addition, these days farmers are increasingly looking at modern solutions that can increase the efficiency of their operations. In this case, renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic installation, energy storage or heat pumps are ideal solutions. Financial savings on energy bills, the possibility to generate additional income, access to financial support programmes and concern for the environment are the main arguments for installing RES.


Agrophotovoltaics - energy for agriculture

New opportunities and even greater benefits

Agro-photovoltaics is the use of a given area of land for both agricultural production as a primary use and the production of electricity from a mounted photovoltaic installation as a secondary use. The design is based on a photovoltaic installation that uses light-transmitting modules placed on structures higher than those commonly used on land. This makes it possible to grow crops, flowers, vegetables, fruit and cereals under the panels.

Benefits of agro-photovoltaics:

  • reducing electricity consumption costs
  • independence from energy suppliers
  • increasing the possibilities of using agricultural soils
  • reducing soil erosion
  • increase in crop productivity

Advantages of agrophotovoltaics

They provide green electricity that can be used for irrigation or other purposes on the farm. The structures are stable and strong - so they have a much better effect than covering the plantation with foil or fabric. They are also much more resistant to intense weather phenomena, such as windstorms or hail. They are excellent at protecting crops from excessive sunlight and the additional shade has a beneficial effect on soil moisture by reducing evaporation. With climate change on the rise, this advantage of agrophotovoltaic construction may become even more important over time.

Such installations have a double benefit - they produce green energy that can, for example, be used to power farms or sent to the grid, and they protect the crop from unusual weather events in a sustainable way.

Agricultural tax relief

Thanks to the investment tax credit, every farmer can deduct 25% of the expenses related to the photovoltaic installation. Under this relief, the farmer can pay no tax for up to 15 years.


The constantly rising price of electricity is a problem for individuals, companies and farmers alike. Farmers who have their own photovoltaic installation become more energy independent. A photovoltaic installation makes it possible to become independent from electricity price rises and gives more certainty and control over access to electricity.

Increase in farm value

Photovoltaics significantly increase the value of the property, which can have a beneficial effect when the farm is sold. The farm becomes more attractive to potential buyers and investing in renewable energy sources contributes to a positive image of the farm.

Making the most of wasteland

The installation of photovoltaic systems is possible both on the roofs of farm buildings and on the ground, e.g. when grazing livestock or next to an agricultural field.
