Dorset's first solar farm proposed



Dorset's first solar farm proposed
Proposals to build the first solar farm in Dorset have been made by local company Eco Sustainable Solutions.

The firm is due to hold a public exhibition on the project on November 5th and 6th, which local residents, councillors and interest groups have been invited to.

If the plans are approved, some 30,000 solar panels would be installed at the site in Parley, which will be capable of producing enough energy to power 1,100 homes.

Trelawney Dampney, Eco's managing director, highlighted that the project would be the first of its kind in Dorset.

"Our plans are just at the proposal stage and we're keen to hear the views of interested parties before preparing and submitting a formal planning application," he added.

The solar farm, which should be capable of producing 5MW of power, will form part of a larger renewable energy project incorporating anaerobic digestion and biomass facilities, which will have a total generation capacity of 12MW.

Earlier this year, Cornwall council said that it was expecting a solar farm boom, after approving plans for the country's first solar park in Truro.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800210841-ADNFCR
