Solar power plant could spark green energy courses interest

A new solar power plant set to be developed in Cornwall could lead to an increasing number of job hunters in south-west England seeking out green energy courses.

Berlin-based solar energy firm Solon announced yesterday (August 16th 2010) that it has entered into a partnership with British business 35 Degrees to construct the 1.3 MWp facility in the hamlet of Bissoe, a former tin mining community near Redruth.

"Solon is close to building the first ground-mounted solar power plant in the UK and sounding the starting shot for a market with a very promising future," said Solon chief executive Stefan Sauberlich in a statement.

The company is hoping to take advantage of the government's "UK Clean Energy Cashback" scheme, which was launched in April and could result in thousands of people who have taken green energy courses gaining jobs over the next few years.

Last week, SolarCentury revealed that the number of people employed by the enterprise and its network of affiliates has doubled over the last year.
