The developers now expect to fit more than 1 million panels onto the 400-hectare site. “We just realised how much more we could get on the site for an east-west layout,” Hive’s Hugh Brennan said.

Is Graveney the right location for such a large solar development?

Despite the rapid increase in solar farms, little research has been conducted on their impact on biodiversity or ecological implications.  The majority of research found was commissioned by renewable companies, and no research was found on solar panels positioned with dual orientation.  This clearly demonstrates that more focussed research is required.

A 300MW development in Spain

Have a look at this video of what a 300MW solar park could look like. It’s still smaller than the 350MW monster planned for Graveney, but it shows a visual of the sort of thing that could be coming.

As big as Faversham
