InstaVolt says its deal to become rapid charging provider for NFU Energy will enable farmers to rent out pieces of land for EV infrastructure projects, earning them extra money.
The rapid charging specialist says it will use its expertise to identify suitable locations so landowners can earn income from the conversion of low-grade land into valuable sites on the UK’s strategic road network.
Instavolt also believes locations with farm-shops can benefit from the extra footfall and increased dwell time provided by new EV chargers.
Adrian Keen, chief executive officer at InstaVolt said, “InstaVolt is dedicated to helping the agriculture and farming sector improve its carbon footprint.
“Charger installations provide landowners with the perfect opportunity to make additional income from their land, and we’re delighted to support farmers looking to diversify their portfolios.
“As well as providing NFU members a fruitful additional revenue stream, working with InstaVolt’s dedicated team will allow landowners to play a major part in helping the country move towards a more sustainable future and help to deliver adequate EV infrastructure as the country moves closer to its net zero deadline.”
Tim Crocker, NFU Energy managing director added, “The partnership will enable us to provide both NFU members and non-members the opportunity to earn money by renting out pieces of land.
“Through this new partnership our aim is to help facilitate the many infrastructure changes necessary to meet net zero, curb ‘range anxiety’ for our EV users and to provide substantial diversification opportunities to farmers and land-owners across the UK.”
