Cambridgeshire County Council is looking to build a 29MW solar farm, adding another development to its portfolio. The Northam Angle Solar Farm in Soham would be located just south of the Council’s existing 12MW Triangle solar farm. Triangle – which started generating in late 2016 – has delivered over £350,000 per annum net revenue to support Council services such as adult social care, it said. Cambridgeshire County Council has been a staunch supporter of solar, announcing this month plans for a 2.5MW solar carport with battery storage located at Babraham Park and Ride in Great Shelford Parish. It has also developed a school’s energy scheme, investing £11 million into 55 schools across its county, and unveiled plans for two solar-plus-storage projects on existing landfill sites in January 2019.
