Shotwick Solar Park - A Great Location
Shotwick Solar Park has been built on agricultural fields north of the A458, Weighbridge Rd, close to the sailing lake.
The site was chosen because of a number of factors:
- Sunlight intensity levels – the site is flat and well located geographically for solar gains and is free of any buildings or landscape features that could cause overshadowing.
- Good highway access.
- The site was available at a size that could accommodate a 72MW solar park.
- Grid connections are available close by.
- The nearby industrial estate accommodates large businesses that consume a significant amount of electricity. .
