Salford City Council has partnered with the Energy Systems Catapult to develop a solar farm in Little Hulton. The agreement will help the council take a step forward in its carbon neutral goals, as well as allowing it to access advice and guidance from the not-for-profit. Additionally, the partnership allows it to access European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grants that will address the gap in funding. Little Hulton solar farm will be built over 3.79 hectares, with 5,094 solar panels installed over five months in 2021 at the site on Kenyon Way. Planning permission for the site was approved in June 2020.
