Oldham Council has announced its intention to build a 900kW solar farm. The electricity generated from the site will be used to supply the council itself, helping with its aim of being carbon neutral by 2025. The farm will be built on disused former Ferranti football fields at Wrigley Head, with a planning application expected to be submitted by the end of February 2020. Building work is expected to begin next year pending approval. The farm will complement the 120kW of rooftop solar already operating on Tommyfield Market, the council said.
