Aberdeenshire Council receives solar panel applications

Aberdeenshire Council receives solar panel applications
Aberdeenshire Council has received five applications for the construction of solar farms, furthering the development of renewable energy in the region.

Each solar farm would include 350 solar panels and three of the projects, if approved, would be developed by Newcastle-based firm TNEI Services, the Press and Journal reported.

According to the news provider, all five projects have been submitted at the "proposal for application notice stage", which means plans for the solar farms have not yet been created.

Andy Edgar, group manager of TNEI, explained the solar projects will help the industry keep up with the development of the wind energy sector in the region.

"The panels are mounted on tables three or four metres (10ft-13ft) off the ground and tilted southwards. There would be rows erected in fields and connected up to the national grid with underground connection," he told the news provider.

The news follows on from Cornwall Council approving plans for a 5MW solar farm in Lostwithiel, which will provide power for South West Water's nearby water treatment plant.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800337267-ADNFCR
