Fen Farm II, Lincolnshire

Further expansion for our biggest site.

Fen Farm is a great site for green energy. It boasts twenty windmills and 1MW of solar energy (provided by 5,000 panels), and we now have permission to add a further 5MW of solar to take total onsite capacity up to 22MW.

The extra 18,000 solar panels will be enough to power more than 1,000 homes and save another 2,000 tonnes of CO2 (see how solar power works). Not to mention increasing biodiversity by creating species-rich grassland and planting native hedgerows.
