Solar triumphs where wind failed in Dorset

Dorset’s largest solar power ‘station’ opened in Dorset, just in time to take full advantage of the feed-in tariffs before they were cut by the Government. (The tariff cut only applies to installations over 50kWh – normal domestic solar panel installations are unaffected).

What’s bizarre is the fact (according to the report in the Daily Echo) that just a few miles away, a similar plan for a wind farm of 4 turbines was refused planning permission.

The 1,780 panels will produce enough energy to power 200 homes.

The solar panels are mounted on angled frames on the ground, for maximum generating effect.

At Solar Panel Quoter, we’ve seen prices for installations stating to fall with some amazing offers on domestic installations – one was a typical 3.3kWh system for £9,995 whilst another company were offering a typical 3.9kWh system for £12,499.
