Cheap electricity consumers in Plymouth could be pleased with plans to build a solar energy park near the city, with the view to supplying energy to hundreds of homes in the area.
According to the Herald, long-formulated plans for the Langage Energy Park attracted positive feedback when they went on display at a community centre earlier this week.
John Squire, district councillor for South Hams, told the newspaper that he often drives past the site near Plympton.
"We've got to do something with the site; we can't leave it like it is," he argued.
"Something has got to happen and we've got to find alternative sources of energy. This seems like a good opportunity to get something productive on the site. It'll be interesting to see when it all comes to planning."
He added: "Any job creation is also bound to be welcome."
Similar green cheap energy projects are in various stages of construction around the country, including the recently approved Restormel solar power park in Cornwall.
