Solar energy as cash cow for farmers.
Assigned by the municipality of Overbetuwe E4S Consult provided workshops on solar energy for farmers. Subsequently for a group of 30 farmers a collective procurement has been organised that has led to a turn-key offer for solar PV systems with very competitive prices (€1,25/Wp) and distinctive quality. Combined with the appropriate fiscal measures solar PV system could be realised with break-even periods of 5-10 year and a return on investement above 10%. E4S Consult provide the individual cost/benefit cashflow calculation for the farmers and supervised implementation.
