More Than 40,000 Panel Sections Suggested On Quarry Bank Site

The sections will make up a brand new ‘solar farm’ on land inside the Newbold Quarry site that was already removed, infilled and restored.

Aggregate Industries is suggesting a twophased programme to provide the photo voltaic farm which may visit a planning application to have an initial 2.2MW installing of 8,800 solar power panels being posted to Staffordshire County Council in November. This is then another application for phase two early the coming year, composed of the further 8.3MW and the other 34,600 sections.

The proposal to build up a photo voltaic farm forms a part of Aggregate Industries’ intends to lessen the carbon pollutants connected using the construction materials it creates.

It replaces previous suggestions to develop a wind generator around the land, which in fact had belong to fire in the Campaign to Safeguard Rural England (CPRE) East Staffordshire District Group, which stated it might ‘damage the entire atmosphere from the valley’.

The photo voltaic farm, which may possess a maximum installed capacity of 15MW, has been advanced with Aggregate Industries’ alternative energy developer partner AGRenewables Ltd.

The suggested fields happen to be restored to pasture and would continue being handled like a wild flower field through the existence from the photo voltaic farm.

The organization stated low carbon electricity produced in the solar power panels would feed into the on-site power grid infrastructure, supplying energy direct towards the quarry procedures. Any electricity not used at Newbold could be ‘bought back’ by Aggregate Industries within energy purchase agreement in lowering the general carbon emission connected using the company’s wider procedures through the United kingdom.
