Ipswich Solar Panels
May 2012 saw the unveiling of plans for a 160 acre solar park on farmland near Framlingham. The proposed installation will feature tiers of PV solar panels standing at 2.2 metres in height which are forecast to provide energy generation for 25,000 homes in the area.
Giles Redpath of renewable energy installation specialists, Hive Energy, commented, "The perception is that the county isn't sunny enough but solar panels have the potential to harvest energy at 70% efficiency even on a cloudy day." Being close to the sea and with an average of 1,550 hours of sunshine annually, Suffolk provides good light and cooling winds; the optimum conditions for solar generation.
