A solar energy farm said to be the most advanced in the UK and possibly the world will open near York this autumn.
Panels will be installed on land at Boscar Grange Farm to the east of the A19, 12 miles north of the city near Easingwold.
It is one of two such farms being built by sustainable energy company Gridserve to generate power to help Warrington Borough Council become the first local authority in the country to produce all its own electricity from clean power.
Toddington Harper, chief executive of Gridserve, said:
- These will be the most advanced solar farms in the UK – and quite possibly the world – ushering in a new era of subsidy-free, truly sustainable energy.
Construction work is due to start at the 198-acre site imminently. It is due to become operational by October.
