Solar Farm nr Marshborough Exhibition Sandwich 19th Jan

vogt solar is developing a proposal for a 5MW solar farm on land to the west of the Sandwich Bypass and north of Marshborough. 
 
The solar farm will provide enough renewable energy to meet the electricity requirements of around 1,500 average UK homes per year, for the 25-year lifetime of the project.
   
A mixed species grass meadow would be created beneath and around the solar panels, attracting insects and birds, and improving biodiversity. The meadow will be grazed by sheep, keeping the land in agricultural use.
 
We would like to invite you to a preview of the public exhibition we are holding. This will be held from 2-3pm (drop-in) on Monday 19th January at The Guildhall in Sandwich.
 
You are also welcome to attend the main session of the public exhibition, which is from 3-7pm on the same day. We are posting out an invitation to the exhibition to local residents today.
 
I attach a briefing document providing an overview of the solar farm proposal, and demonstrating how it compares to a larger, previous proposal brought forward in 2013. This document also details the many biodiversity benefits the solar farm would bring to the area.
 
I hope you are able to attend the exhibition preview. Should you have any questions at all, or if you feel a meeting or briefing would be beneficial, please do let me know. Similarly, please feel free to forward this document onto your members, or anyone else you think may be interested in the project
