The area is so suitable for solar panel installation a large solar farm is planned near St Neots that will power 15,000 homes reported in Cambridgeshire Live. The 50megawatt solar farm in Huntingdonshire, if approved, would power the homes for 40 years. Plans were submitted to Huntindonshire District Council and Bedford Borough Council explaining that the solar installation would be a “valuable contribution” to sustainability in the local area.
This adds to an exisitng solar farm to the west of Hail Weston and brings with it significant biodiversity enhancements to the 103.7 hectare site.
The District Council also promotes the MCS Website as useful source of finding local qualified installers of renewables, just like Green Building Renewables Daventry and Wellingborough.
