Park Farm generates sufficient power to supply 3500 homes* saving c5,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year*–  helping to tackle climate change by making an important contribution to local and national carbon reduction targets.

 

Belltown Power is committed to protecting and enhancing wildlife at our solar farms. At Park Farm this includes creating a wildflower meadow beside the park to provide habitats for many species, including small mammals and invertebrate. We have also planted new native hedgerows and trees to provide screening, shelter, and habitats for a variety of wildlife and plant species and installed bird and bat boxes to increase nesting/roosting opportunities.

**CO2 Reductions (p.a.) in Tonnes: Using DECC’s carbon saving figure of 430g/kWh. Carbon reduction is calculated by multiplying the kWh generation per year by the number of grams of CO2 saved per kilowatt hour, divided by 1000000 to demonstrate tonnes and not grams of CO2.
