7Energy to exhibit at Energy Now Expo

As one of the leading designers, suppliers and installers of renewable energy systems in Shropshire we will be showcasing our latest installations at an exhibition for farmers and landowners in Telford this week.

The Energy Now Expo is taking place over the next two days (11th and 12th) at the Telford International Centre, demonstrating the latest technology and developments in the market, of which 7 Energy is at the forefront.

We will be presenting our solutions for renewable energy that are specifically targeted to the agricultural and rural sectors.

Being based in a county like Shropshire has given us an advantage when it comes to knowing the issues around renewable energy for farmers and landowners.

We’re looking forward to meeting delegates and explaining about the renewable energy options available to them and the projects we have completed across the region that are already saving our customers money on their energy bills.

And we have the experience in spades, as the installer of one of the region’s largest solar PV installations to date! That was a scheme which saw more than 2,300 panels installed at two poultry farms owned by farmer Edward Davies, including a 150 metres-long ground array of 1,200 panels in Ludlow.

The flagship installation, which produces around 433,472 kWh a year, attracts the Feed-in-Tariff and should pay for itself within eight years.

The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive scheme for commercial installations includes farm and agri-businesses and this gives clear financial benefits of renewable energy.

For many of our customers, the RHI is paying out more via the incentive a year than the annual cost of the fuel. And with so many farms and rural businesses off gas-grid and reliant on costly oil to heat their properties, we are expecting a lot of interest at the Expo in our green heat systems.

More than 160 product and service suppliers are exhibiting at the two-day event that includes a conference and expert panel debates on wind, biogas, biomass as well as solar and ground source heating.
