UK's largest and greenest solar farm starts generating energy

The Southwick Estate Solar Farm near Fareham, Hampshire, has been connected to the grid and is now generating enough renewable electricity to supply the equivalent of approximately 14,500 average homes.
The 48MW project is currently the largest solar farm operating in the UK.

The site is surrounded by woodland, with numerous hedgerows and a public footpath crossing it, so the most challenging aspect of the build was managing the construction work to ensure that there was minimal disruption to hedgerows and wildlife.
