St Eval Recycling Centre will reduce its carbon footprint by 6,152 tonnes over the next 20 years thanks to its new solar farm which was commissioned in May 2015.
The 3 acre solar farm consists of 2400 solar panels with a total installed capacity of 620kWp.
The owners of St Eval Recycling Centre, Chris and Karen Prynn, were looking for a renewable project for their land and initially explored the opportunity for a wind turbine. However, due to the site’s proximity to a listed church they proceeded with a solar farm, which is banked around the edge and hidden from view.
At CleanEarth we work hard to find the best solutions for our customers and this project was no different. We respected the planning constraints of the local area and moved forward with a renewable energy solution that worked for all involved.
CleanEarth own the solar farm and St Eval Recycling Centre receive a rental income for their land and use the majority of the generated electricity which is supplied through a CleanEarth Power Purchase Agreement at a unit cost below the businesses standard import price.
