Farmers and land owners excited by renewable energy revenue

Buy-to-let Finance reported the results of a recent opinion poll of UK Farmers by a real estate agency, on the subject of renewable energy.

With land prices starting to increase and the new Government incentives for renewable energy production, it's no wonder that Farmers and land owners are excited.

In the survey, more than 90% of respondents said they were planning to install some form of renewable energy generating technology - from solar panels and wind turbines to hydro, as a means of revenue generation.

For example, it's estimated that two wind turbines could raise a farms annual profits by £250 per acre.

8% of landowners were already using renewable energy sources.
