We’ve talked many times about the massive, monster scale of this proposal. This is not your normal sized solar park. Cleve Hill Solar Park Ltd are taking an industrial-scale approach to solar:
- it would be 7x times bigger than most of the large parks in the UK
- that’s 70x bigger than the solar park at Abbey Fields.
- it would be bigger than 640 football pitches
- a solar industry website says it would be the largest power plant in Europe
In today’s post we’ve come up with another way to think about the scale. If you’ve walked across this landscape, the Nagden and Graveney Marshes might not seem ‘big’. But as our diagram shows, the area being proposed to be blanketed in solar panels is as big as Faversham.
