A planning application has been submitted for the development of a 1.4MW subsidy-free solar power plant at the Duke of Gloucester Barracks in Gloucestershire. It would consist of 5,200 solar panels and generate enough electricity to power around 350 homes as well as save 400 tonnes of CO2 a year. It will be connected by private wire to the Barracks – which means power will be consumed on site – accounting for one third of its total consumption over a year. Swindon Borough Council’s Public Power Solutions (PPS), in partnership with the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) delivery partner, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) carried out all the project development work, including feasibility studies and grid works.
