Rush Wall Solar Park
BSR Energy is looking to develop Rush Wall Solar Park. This project, if permitted, will generate approximately 75MWp of solar photovoltaic energy to the electricity network.
This solar park will produce enough clean renewable electricity to power 18,755 homes per year*, a saving of 16,611 tonnes CO2e!
As this project is located within a SSSI designation, we have undertaken several detailed ecology surveys to understand the flora and fauna within the site. This information has been used to shape the development into the existing environment.
The solar park will feature the latest technology from the industry, with a primary focus to maximise the yield over the given area.
