Between the power needed for our Barn & Kitchen, Fun Barn, and keeping up to 24,000 litres of ice cream at the perfect temperature, Churchfields can require a lot of electricity!
Having “dipped our toes in the water” with small solar panel systems on two of the houses at Churchfields, in 2014 we decided to invest in a 120Kw solar panel system to help reduce our increasing electricity costs. The field of Photovoltaic panels is about an acre and a half in size.
Electricity from them helps power the food production here at Churchfields and the farm’s electric car.
