Solarcentury submits plans for two Norfolk solar parks
Oct 22, 2012 - UK solar energy company Solarcentury has filed applications with the Breckland Council for two solar farms to be built in Norfolk, East England, the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press reported on Monday.
Hardingham 2 solar farm is to consist of 60,480 solar panels located near Hardingham village. Claypit Moor solar facility, comprising 47,040 modules, is to be located near the village of Tittleshall and produce enough power to supply 2,818 households a year, the paper said. Combined, the two projects will cover just over 60 hectares (148 acres).
To date the proposals have raised no objections and a decision on the two farms is expected by the end of the year. The two solar facilities have proposed operational life of 25 years, which could be extended in future.
