First RES UK solar farm exports electricity to grid

Four Burrows Solar Farm near Truro, Cornwall, became fully operational on Monday, 12 January following a six-month construction period with EPC contractor Oskomera.

Situated adjacent to RES’ operational Four Burrows Wind Farm, which has been generating renewable electricity since 1995, the solar farm occupies some 14 hectares (34 acres) and will generate sufficient clean, green electricity to meet the average annual needs of more than 1,300 homes.

Commenting on the successful completion of the project, RES’ head of UK solar Tom Fewster said: “Four Burrows Solar Farm is a significant achievement for RES. Not only is this our first solar farm in the UK, it is also the first location where we have successfully combined onshore wind and solar technologies to create a ‘renewables hub’.”
