Scottow Moor solar farm begins exporting power to grid
Posted on: 05/05/2016

Scotow Moor solar farm has now reached completion and at 50MW, is expected to save almost 20,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Scottow Moor Solar founder David Fyffe said: “We are delighted to have completed our solar farm. It’s been another monumental effort by everyone involved to get the work completed on schedule: our contractors and suppliers, as well as the teams at Scottow Enterprise Park and UK Power Networks.

“We hope that by providing onsite and sustainable electricity generation, the SMSL solar farm can help attract new investment into Scottow Enterprise Park.”

More than 70,000 solar panels and new underground connections to the local UKPN electricity networks were installed in January this year, which completed the work on the four solar units.

Norfolk County Council and the former RAF base landowners- where the farm is located- will secure in excess of £10 million in rental income from SMSL over the following 25 years.
