CLA Rural Powerhouse Podcast

Electrical Storage as an Alternative Farm Income

Listen on

Episode notes

With Brexit, the loss of direct support under the Basic Payment Scheme and the impact of coronavirus, diversification has never been more important to the rural economy and the planning system plays a central role in enabling or obstructing rural development. In the fourth and final podcast for Rural Powerhouse Week, we speak to CLA member Hugh Broom about his diversification into battery storage. Challenged with a site both in an AONB and Green Belt, Hugh finds an innovative way to navigate the planning system and diversify into an area which will only continue to gain importance and traction as we shift to a low-carbon economy.
