Solar farm planned for Monk Sherborne
PLANS to build a solar farm on 95.9 acres of land near Monk Sherborne will be revealed to the public.
SunEdison and Solar Planning Limited are proposing to build a 20 MWp solar farm on a site adjoining the A339, south of Shothanger Works.
The companies are holding a public exhibition on August 21 from 3pm until 8pm at Rooksdown Community Centre, in Park Prewett Road, Basingstoke.
Residents will be able to find out more about the plans and speak to members of the project development team, who will answer questions.
The companies say the proposed farm could generate enough energy to power approximately 6,000 homes, with a CO2 saving or more than 8,600 tons per year.
The farm would be temporary and after 25 years the land would revert to its previous state.
Adriano Satta, founding partner of Solar Planning Limited, said: “The exhibition is open to the local community and we look forward to welcoming them and hearing their views.”
