June 20, 2014 - The 4.9MW solar farm is situated near Bodmin in Cornwall and covers an area of just under ten hectares. A neighbouring company buys the power, which is delivered via a direct supply line. The sustainably produced energy therefore directly benefits the local economy. Average annual power generation is around 5.13 million kWh, saving approx. 3,400 tonnes of CO2 per year. BayWa r.e. installed 18,810 polycrystalline modules and 150 string inverters for the plant.
The UK is one of the core markets for BayWa r.e.'s renewable energy business. Further projects are currently under construction or at the planning stage.
