Lincolnshire project may spur interest in PV training

Demand for PV training in Lincolnshire could be about to rise after a one-MW solar farm at Fen Farm near Coniston was completed.

The facility, which was part-funded through Eco-tricity EcoBonds, is due to be finished today (July 7th) and has the capacity to power 300 homes for 25 years, reported the Lincolnshire Echo.

Eco-tricity managing director Dale Vince told the newspaper that the government must support more projects of this type if it is serious about being the greenest leaders in history.

"It's not just about green jobs and green industry, we need large-scale solar as part of the UK's energy mix to make the UK more energy-independent and reduce our carbon," he said.

The Eco-tricity scheme sees consumers investing their money in power generation projects and reaping rewards when the facilities are up and running.

A 1.4 MW solar farm near Truro, Cornwall recently connected to the grid just in time to qualify for incentive subsidies from the government and becomes the largest centre of its type in the UK.
