Higher Wraxall Solar Park

BSR Energy are preparing to submit an application to Dorset District Council for a Solar PV scheme less than 1.0 km south west of the centre of the settlement of Higher Wraxall and to the eastern aspect of the A356 carriageway. The Solar scheme will have an approximate design capacity of 14MWp and would generate an estimated MWh of clean, renewable and sustainable electricity per year. This is the equivalent to the annual electrical needs of approx. 3,501 family homes*. The anticipated CO2 displacement is around 3,101 tonnes per annum.
