1.2MW Solar Farm
The innovative scheme is one way in which the authority is continuing to deliver its ambition to be a Net Zero Carbon City by 2030. It also demonstrates the benefits of solar power for all to share and contributing to wider emissions reductions across Devon.
Despite the COVID-19 outbreak the project, located on an redundant landfill site at Water Lane, is well under way.
The £3.5million scheme will receive almost £1.6m in grant funding from the European Regional Development Fund. This fund is designed to drive forward innovation, energy storage solutions and smart grid systems in the region.
