Land regeneration company Harworth Group and greentech, a renewable energy company specialising in solar photovoltaic (PV), have submitted plans to Telford & Wrekin Council for the development of a solar farm at the site of the former Huntington Lane open cast coal mine. The proposed solar farm will generate 28,500 MWh per year in renewable electricity, enough to power 8,650 homes. It will save 15,000kg of CO2 per year, making a significant contribution to the Climate Emergency and Telford & Wrekin Council’s target for the borough to be carbon neutral by 2030.
