This is our second sun park planned in sunny Somerset.
At 4.2MW, this will make enough green energy from the sun to power 1,200 homes for the next 25 years. And solar panels do it all silently, day in and day out.
That means more home-grown energy for us all, and yet another step on the way to energy independence and a renewable future for Britain.
We secured planning permission for Lodge Farm in December 2011.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve started work at Lodge Farm. Over recent weeks, we’ve installed access tracks and key site infrastructure. We’ll keep you updated, but we’ll soon be harnessing the power of the sun at our second sun park.
