A renewable energy company claims it will build the UK’s largest solar plant in South Devon after it got the council’s approval yesterday.
TGC Renewables said it will install 27,924 solar panels in a farm near South Brent and will be the country’s largest solar project to date.
The company claims the 8MW project will provide the farm with a guaranteed rental income in the next 25 years and can produce enough electricity to power 2500 homes.
Rob Denman, Director at TGC Renewables said: “This project is one of a number of large multi-MW schemes we have in development as we respond to the interest and demand from the farming community for renewable energy.
“With our in-house expertise, we can take the project through the entire development cycle from feasibility through to grid connection.”
