Eneco open Sevor Farm Solar

Members of South Marston community helped open the 10MW Sevor Farm Solar recently constructed by sustainable energy company, Eneco.

The solar farm, which provides power directly to the nearby Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) site, was acquired by Eneco at the beginning of this year. 

After a four month build period the 43 acre project was completed in April 2014.

The power output will now provide around 64 per cent of the annual electricity requirement of HUM’s Engine Plant.

Eneco director Guy Madgwick said: “While we are proud of the build of the project, its output and significance to Eneco as our largest onshore solar project, we are most of all extremely appreciative of the cooperation and warm welcome given to us from the local community.

“Sevor Farm Solar also represents localised self-supply of a large manufacturing business – something that is central to Eneco’s decentralised and sustainable energy strategy.”
