Could financial incentives boost your income or cut the time needed to get a return on your investment? Could they even provide vital seed funding to get the project off the ground?
How we help
Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) – our specialist agents apply for SRDP funding on your behalf. This is a grant to help complete the capital work. http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/farmingrural/SRDP
Feed in Tariff (FiT) – the Feed in Tariff is one of the main financial incentives for small-scale renewable projects. It provides installers of small scale projects with a payment for every unit of electricity generated and exported. www.fitariffs.co.uk
Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROCs) – ROCs are issued to producers of renewable electricity. While they are available to all producers, they are generally used by larger-scale generators. http://www.ofgem.gov.uk/Sustainability/Environment/RenewablObl/Pages/RenewablObl.aspx
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – This scheme supports renewable technologies providing useful heat for both commercial and domestic applications.
Community and Renewable Energy Scheme - £2.4 million is being made available in 2011-12 to farmers and other land managers to help them harness Scotlands renewable energy potential. The scheme will provide a grant to landowners or community groups to help meet their start-up costs, which is only paid back if planning permission is approved.
