Cheap energy customers in Cornwall could soon be receiving power supplied by a solar farm.
Energy supplier Kronas Solar has obtained planning permission to build a £15 million renewable energy site in North Petherwin, near Launceston, the Western Morning News reports.
Dr Alexander Arcache, founder of the power company, told the newspaper that the development is "very exciting".
"There will be no big pylons, all the cables from the site will be laid underground," he explained, adding that the project will provide job opportunities for local people.
There are a number of similar initiatives taking place in Cornwall at the moment, with developer 35 Degrees also receiving permission to build a photovoltaic energy site at Wheal Jane in order to produce enough cheap electricity to power 300 homes.
The newspaper reports that Cornwall Council is planning to submit plans for another £15 million solar energy farm in Newquay, which would be the first such site to be owned by a local authority in the UK.
