Renewables event for landowners


Two free seminars offering advice for farmers and landowners considering renewable energy projects on their land are being hosted in March.

With the continuing focus on the region’s potential for renewables, Truro-based insurer Cornish Mutual has teamed up with Francis Clark accountants and law firm Stephens Scown, to organise the events explaining best practice in renewable energy, how to choose the right renewable energy product for your land and what insurance cover you need.

The first of the free seminars will be held at Exeter Racecourse (March 6), with a second taking place at the Royal Cornwall Showground, near Wadebridge (March 13).

Paul Mahon, head of business development for Cornish Mutual, said: “Renewable energy is becoming increasingly popular with farmers and landowners seeking to diversify or develop new income streams.

“The seminar will cover everything you need to know if you’re considering implementing renewable energy on your land, and we hope that all the farmers and landowners who attend will leave with enough knowledge and understanding to make an informed decision on whether renewable energy is right for them.”
