These solar farm plans have been in development since 2018, as part of the council’s ongoing work to deliver its Green Energy Strategy and meet the aims of its climate emergency declaration. The approval of the plans for the Community Municipal Investment means the public will be able to be part of the project.

The power generated from the solar farm will be used to meet the council’s energy needs, with any surplus energy generated sold.
