Funding Available For Yorkshire Farmers
Farmers in the Yorkshire area are to act quickly if they wish to be eligible for grants to purchase rainwater harvesting tanks, heat exchangers, slurry separators and heat capture units. The Rural Development Programme for England is aiming to reduce farm energy use and offering these grants. The application deadline closes on March 7, this year so act quickly! Visit http://www.co2sense.org.uk/frep for more information.
We obviously can’t help you with heat exchangers, but rain water harvesting and recycling we can! If you need a quote for setting up such a system or some advice please give us a call. Grant aid ranges from £1500 to £25,000 for up to 50% of the equipment cost.
Over the last few years, we have dealt with many farmers from all over the country who have had access to grants, so even if your not in Yorkshire, it may be worth researching into.
