PROJECT SUMMARY

To appoint a consultant to undertake a feasibility study to assess two options, the viability of either a wind turbine or a solar PV tem at the proposed site

BACKGROUND

Joanne Shields was keen to investigate the potential of installing a second renewable energy source on the land to further develop the business, provide an additional income stream and secure the future of the farm business. DRAP funded a feasibility study to assess two options, the viability of either an additional wind turbine or a solar PV tem, and also to establish the most appropriate site on the land for it to be positioned.

ACTIVITIES

DRAP funding enabled Joanne Shields to assess the feasibility of generating wind and solar renewable energy at her farm.
