Bulkworthy, Devon

Hybrid energy comes to Devon.

We’re looking to add a new 5MW solar site to our existing Galsworthy Farm wind park. The extra 18,000 solar panels would power over 1,000 homes every year and bring the site’s total energy generation up to a whopping 15.2MW (see how solar energy works).

It would also have a big impact on local biodiversity, creating a species-rich meadow which would benefit our brilliant bees and farmland birds.
