Carla Hardaker

Carla Hardaker, Head of Development

As project manager at BSR, no two days are the same for Carla. One day she’s liaising with solicitors and landowners over lease negotiations, the next, visiting a planning officer to discuss the various merits of a scheme or considerations for a planning application. As the solar industry matures and knowledge of best practice and opportunity grows, Carla is passionate about developing sites that maximise biodiversity opportunities and that communities can be proud of, so that they inspire future generations to understand the benefits of solar and the importance of our industry in tackling climate change.

“It’s no secret that we need more renewable energy on a global scale. Solar parks create clean, cost-effective energy from an infinite source. Furthermore, the opportunity solar parks offer in increasing biodiversity can be huge. Win-win!”
