JS Nicholson Farm, a Dumfries and Galloway farm run by 6th generation owner Craig Nicholson, reduced energy costs for their poultry sheds by 80%. 

Using a free energy assessment by Zero Waste Scotland and an interest-free SME loan from the Scottish government, they installed:

  • solar PV panels
  • energy efficient heaters 
  • an automated ventilation system
