Rushcliffe Solar

Rushcliffe Solar started as a Transition West Bridgford campaign to encourage greater use of Photovoltaic home power generation systems in Rushcliffe borough, but we are always willing to answer an enquiry from other towns in the region. There are many buildings and entire streets with roofs which have a good view of the Sun and could produce power for the Grid and Income for the occupants. Hit the You Enquire tab to get a free appraisal of the photovoltaic potential for your building. Email:
If you are thinking about it, do not be put off by recent changes in the tariff!: Since April 2012, the tariff was reduced to 21 pence/unit and ones on poorly insulated buildings get only 9 pence/unit. There have been further reductions since. Use the Expertsure calculator to check out your house and see if it is still worth doing.

Gedling Solar farm proposal

9 Mar '11: I just picked this up from the Nottingham Evening Post pages:

"Plans for 'sunshine farm' on former Gedling Colliery site
By Winnie Agbonlahor

"RESIDENTS are having their say on plans for an £11 million state-of-the-art "sunshine farm" on the former Gedling Colliery site."
"The project would produce energy for up to 1,300 homes in the surrounding area, as well as creating jobs."
"A public consultation is being held on the proposals for the solar farm, which would cover around 30 acres of the 350 acres site."
