In an article published in the Telegraph, it was reported that visitors are stalking Britain's rural communities in unsuitable footwear, offering farmers the deal of a lifetime. They're not pushing a wonder fertilizer or trying to side-step their local farmers' market in the hunt for a new superfood, but offering help to cash in on the new gold rush - solar power.

Since April, when the Government brought in new subsidies to promote the development of renewable energy, farmers have found they hold the key to a secure investment.
