The Sun

It’s a little counter intuitive to most of us, but Britain has enough sun. 

Well, it has enough sun to make lots of green electricity anyway.

It’s not all wind and rain here – and Britain can make solar energy on a large scale.

Large scale sun parks have only recently become possible in Britain, but we expect solar power (sometimes called photovoltaic energy) to become a major source of green electricity for Ecotricity over the next few years. Our first sun park is up and running in Lincolnshire – and we have five others in planning.

In this section you can find an introduction to solar energy, find out what solar energy is, and gets lots more information on what we’re doing to harness this incredible natural resource.

Sunmills have a carbon payback of 3 years, leaving 27 more completely CO2 free!

Amongst other reasons, the Sun and the Wind are a good team.

Why the sun?

Turning the Sun into electricity.  It’s not rocket science, er actually it might be…:)
