BSR Energy have submitted an application to East Suffolk District Council for a Solar PV scheme off of Loudham Hall Road, approximately 1.5km south east of the centre of the settlement of Wickham Market and to the eastern aspect of the A12 dual carriageway. The Solar scheme will have an approximate design capacity of 21MWp and would generate an estimated 19,950 MWh of clean, renewable and sustainable electricity per year. This is the equivalent to the annual electrical needs of approx. 5,251 family homes*. The anticipated CO2 displacement is around 4,651 tonnes per annum!
