From airfield to solar farm

A fully-funded project providing 32MW a year to local businesses
and annual income for the site owner

Converting a disused airfield into a solar farm

This project was all about converting a disused airfield into a giant solar energy farm generating 32 Megawatts of power per year

The solar farm was installed on the site of a former RAF Coltishall base in Norfolk

Working with the local council and key stakeholders, RAF Coltishall has been converted by adding solar panel arrays onto the grass areas.
