The farming sector is a key specialism for us. With our owner Philip coming from a farming background, we have the specialist knowledge to provide the best solutions and common sense approach in a sector with very specific needs and unique environments. We know farm owners demand good value and that it’s just as bad to over spec a job as it is to under spec. We always make sure we provide solutions that will last, but that you don’t pay for things you don’t need. One thing we don’t do is offer everyone a one-size-fits-all solution. We look at every site individually before we make a recommendation, taking into account the type of farming for instance, as that can be a key factor on the technology we recommend. When it comes to all things electrical and solar for agriculture, you can rely on us. Here’s some of the key services we provide to the farming industry or alternatively contact us for the most suitable renewable energy for your farm .

Solar PV

With the space to accommodate multiple solar panels, this technology can be a good fit for many farms. We recommend equipment that you can be sure is up to the job such as ammonia resistant panels and water resistant inverters. We find that farm owners can benefit in three ways from Solar PV technology. First they have the reliability of generating their very own power - a big consideration to ensure continuity of supply. Secondly, they can make a profit with their Feed in Tariff, and thirdly they can make more profit on the Export Tariff. Read more about this in our solar pv feed-in tariff section.

LED Lighting

For large agricultural buildings this can be a great way to reduce energy costs and can significantly lower energy consumptions without losing lighting output. The long term reliability and excellent product warranties mean less property maintenance hassles. There’s lots of options available to suit a wide range of farm buildings.

“Norcroft Energy have carried out Electrical Safety Inspections across the Estate on tenanted farms and cottages for approximately 6 years. They have alerted us to potential installation problems and have dealt with them in a prompt and professional manner and show courtesy and flexibility to tenants when arranging access for remedial works to be carried out. The administration is carried out with great efficiency and all certificates are received promptly. When an estimate has been accepted, the work is carried out exactly to that specification and cost; should any additional work be identified we are informed immediately for authorisation.”

“We chose Norcroft Energy to install a new biomass boiler as they have experience of working on farms so fully understood our requirements. They helped us through the whole process, were true to their word, and provided a high standard of workmanship. We would have no hesitation in recommending Norcroft to others.”

Chris Pearson, Peacock Lodge Farm

“We have been looking at ways to reduce our costs and generating our own electricity seemed like a great way to do this. We have a large south facing roof on our site so after talking to Norcroft Energy, it made perfect sense to use this space to install multiple solar panels to generate our own power and make a profit at the same time. Norcroft Energy were the perfect choice. With Philip coming from a farming background, he had the specialist knowledge and experience to help us make an informed decision. Now the solar panel installation is complete, we are looking forward to reaping the benefits.”
