New Initiative Launched to Help Horticultural Producers Reduce Energy Costs

Horticultural producers now have the opportunity to apply for a new grant scheme aimed at reducing their energy expenses. This initiative, part of the Farming Investment Fund, offers financial assistance to growers for the installation of more energy-efficient technologies in their operations.

The scheme is designed to support the adoption of advanced equipment that can lead to significant energy savings. This includes the installation of LED lighting systems, which are known for their lower energy consumption compared to traditional lighting methods. By switching to these modern technologies, growers can not only cut down on their energy bills but also contribute to environmental sustainability.

Applications for the grant are open to a wide range of horticultural businesses across England and the funding is a part of the wider Farming Investment Fund, which encompasses various programmes aimed at enhancing productivity and sustainability in farming. The government's focus through this fund is to support the agricultural sector in becoming more efficient, innovative, and environmentally friendly.

The launch of this grant scheme has been welcomed by the horticultural community, as it provides a much-needed financial boost to help them invest in modern, energy-saving technologies.

The move is seen as a step forward in promoting sustainable practices in agriculture, aligning with the broader goals of reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change.
