Renewable Energy in farming - Part of any energy management solution is the need to cater for renewable energy solutions to complement the energy grid supplied to the farm. Solar and wind energy systems are standard across many farming environments globally and provide much needed alternative energy sources, to reduce operational costs but also to reach difficult areas on the farm where electrical reticulation is not an option.
Pylot is currently working on a project to install Ingenu RPMA radio high sites on a farm. These high sites have no means of power and will be driven off solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays. Other projects include feasibility studies to drive water pumps in inaccessible areas using solar power.
