New solar farm proposed near Bishop’s Waltham

Posted on

The proposed solar farm would generate up to 15MW of electricity to feed directly into the local electrical grid network, generating enough renewable electricity to power around 4,545 average households.

The solar farm would save up to 6,700 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum.

Site and Location
The proposed site is approximately 20 hectares/ 50 acres in size and is located on land west of Winchester Road, north of the Clewers Hill junction, approximately 1km south of Bishop’s Waltham and 1km north of Waltham Chase.

A pre-application public exhibition was held on Thursday 20 November 2014 at the Jubilee Hall, Bishop’s Waltham. The leaflet summarising the key details of the project is available at the following link:
