Dairy Farmers Funding Options

All funding options will eradicate your client's fuel bills and all include an allowance for heat schemes so they can best use the heat as it suits their farm. 

Government Funded

How it's funded: Your client will need at least 250 cows to qualify. They sign up to a 20 year lease with a reputable pension fund. After 20 years, the machine can be passed to your client for a pound. The AD machine remains the property of the pension fund until the transfer at which point your client will take responsibility for its maintenance. The pension fund pay for this to be installed and maintained on your client's land by receiving the RHI (heat incentive payments) and FIT (feed in tariff payments for unused electricity exported to the Nation Grid).

Key Benefits:

  • The Biolectric Micro AD machine will be fully installed, maintained and insured at no cost to your client.
  • You receive all of the heat and the electricity to use on the farm and in your houses so no more fuel bills!
