Biggest solar energy farm in the UK opens in Oxfordshire
July 11, 2011
A business park in Oxfordshire is now home to the UK’s largest solar energy farm which will generate nearly a quarter of the site’s power.
Howbery Business Park in Wallingford has 3,000 solar panels which have just been connected to the Grid. The panels will save 350 tonnes of CO2 emissions and generate enough energy to power 200 homes.
Thanks to Government renewable heat incentives such as the Feed in Tariffs scheme, installing solar panels can be very affordable, and a value for money way of generating power for both businesses and homes.
Homeowners can install photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of their property to generate electricity, so you can save significant amounts of money on your energy costs. Solar panels work even in cloudy conditions so you can be sure that all your energy requirements can be met, and the Government’s Feed in Tariffs scheme allows you to sell extra energy back to the Grid, giving you an extra income.
