‘We aim to cause minimal damage to environment’
Green Switch Solutions’ head of marketing Sophie Hatton said: “This site is currently at the stage of a feasibility assessment and in the initial stages of development.
“An environmental impact assessment is required, the exact scope of which will be detailed by the council and done by ourselves.
“Once we have these results and those regarding electrical grid connection, we decide whether the site is viable.
“If it becomes permitted development, we will engage with any concerned parties. Green Switch Solutions strives to make each development viable for the customer as well as the local community.
“We frequently work with wildlife interest and conservation groups to preserve local flora and fauna.
“Whenever we develop a solar park, we retain the hedged borders and aim to cause minimal damage to the environment. In fact, solar farms actively encourage and enable wildlife to thrive.
“Being located in remote areas that remain relatively untouched for 25 years, general operations and maintenance occur to maintain panel efficiency.
“At the end of the 25-year period, the site can continue to produce renewable energy or be returned to its former state.”
