Generating enough electricity to power 1000 homes, it is also on course to generate £180,000 in revenue and be of great benefit to the environment.

Quoting from the article on the Council website..
“During the first 12 months the solar farm has generated 3.96 GWH of green electricity – this is enough energy to power nearly 1,000 average homes for a year.

The solar farm has generated income and power and has helped avoid the production of 2,000 tons of CO2 emissions compared to more traditional electricity production.

The Council has made a commitment to move towards a more sustainable financial position to help offset government cuts. The solar farm project is a part of its strategy to find new ways of generating income that will help to protect frontline services.”
