A second issue is solar panels. I tabled parliamentary questions in early 2017 on the use of solar panels on farm sheds. I know there was more of a debate about using land for solar panels. It has implications for basic farm payments related to the amount of land being used, and it intensifies farming as well. We have to keep a balance. I would be in favour of using PV on sheds to generate electricity to sell back into the grid. That would make perfect sense.
