A recent review of Cambridgeshire County Council’s rural estate identified North Angle Farm in Soham as a potential site for a solar farm. North Angle Farm is located just south of the Council’s existing solar farm, Triangle Farm.

The scope of the project being considered at North Angle is a 29MW capacity solar farm, covering an area of approximately 76 hectares (188 acres).

It is estimated that the overall site could generate nearly the same amount of electricity as used by 12,000 households annually and would prevent the emission of more than 91,000 tonnes of CO2 over the project’s lifetime through offsetting fossil fuel electricity generation.

The transformation of the site has the potential to hit four of the six priorities for the Council’s Corporate Energy Strategy: energy generation, energy supply, selling energy and supporting sustainable growth.

This survey closes on 20th May 2020.
