Nottinghamshire solar farm could spark interest in PV training

A new solar farm - one of the largest in Britain - has been constructed in Nottinghamshire and could encourage more tradesmen in the area to consider PV training.

The green power facility can power up to 1,500 homes with its 21,600 solar panels, and the whole centre was delivered in under six weeks.

Speaking to BBC News, managing director of developers Lark Energy Jonathan Selwyn highlighted how the solar farm will help the country meet its carbon emission reduction commitments, as well as help ease energy security fears.

"I am delighted that Lark Energy has played a leading role in demonstrating how large scale renewable energy can be deployed quickly," he told the news provider.

The speed at which the facility was put up was largely down to the need to beat an August deadline that would have seen the developers earn two-thirds less for the energy produced.

Last week, the government published the Electricity Market Reform White Paper, which explores how the UK can improve the industry.
