David Ball is farm manager for Kemble Farms Ltd. In 2008 they completed the installation of a 300kW anaerobic digestion plant, which complemented their dairy unit and provided another income following fluctuating milk prices. The plant was limited to this size by its locality to National Grid connections. For example, if they went above 300kW at its current location, they would require three miles of additional cabling. While generating electricity and making economic sense, the plant is also producing additional benefits for the environment and local residents.
