Little South solar energy farm
Statkraft is preparing to submit a planning application to Dover District Council for a solar energy farm which will comprise solar arrays and battery energy storage on land south of Richborough.
The site has been carefully chosen for its potential to deliver renewable electricity to the grid, helping meet national and local renewable energy targets.
The solar energy farm would have an approximate design capacity of 50MW. The anticipated CO2 displacement is approximately 20,000 tonnes per year, the equivalent of removing 7,000 conventional cars from the road each year.
