Plans for Verwood solar farm revealed

PROPOSALS to build a solar farm at Verwood’s Manor Farm went before the public on Monday.

The proposed development, by Wiltshire-based Solstice Renewables, is for a 22 megawatt solar park that would generate enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 5,500 average homes.

Solstice Renewables company director Giovanni Maruca said: “Verwood Manor Farm is a great site for a solar park as it is well screened from the local area, and the land where the panels will be is currently of a low agricultural value.”
