This site is located on an area of land situated between Woolfardisworthy and Poughill in Devon. Summerlands solar farm is a 0.7MW system comprised of over 3300 JA Solar panels, each with a capacity of 240W.
This system was built on an existing agricultural fi eld and did not require the removal of any trees or hedges.
Maintaining all trees and hedges means that there is minimal visual impact because the panels are sited between 0.8 and 2.0m above ground level. Lightsource carried out a thorough investigation regarding the development of nature conservation issues on and surrounding the site. Further seeding and tree plantings will also be implemented as part of the biodiversity enhancements to this area.
