Residents in Cornwall who are hoping to switch energy deals might be interested to hear that an eco developer is to build a solar energy park in the county.
According to the Gazette, Foresight has received planning permission for a 27-acre renewable energy scheme, which will be able to meet 1,500 home and business energy users' demands.
The developer has partnered with energy supplier Cornwall Power and was able to take advantage of the government's feed-in tariff initiative, which provides subsidies for projects that can sell excess energy to the national grid.
Jamie Richards, a partner at Foresight, told the newspaper that the planning application was submitted last spring but work should commence soon now that permission has been granted.
"There are targets that have to be hit by the government by 2020, so I am confident we will continue to see investment in these sorts of schemes," he noted.
"The project that we have begun in Cornwall is one of the first, and certainly the largest, seen in this country."
Meanwhile, solar panels are set to be installed on warehouse roofs in Ipswich.
