Woodhorn Group combines solar farm with conservation

Organic farming and waste management company the Woodhorn Group recently unveiled a brand new 35-acre 5MW solar farm at it’s Oving site in Chichester.

The scheme will produce 4.5m kWh a year of renewable energy into the National Grid and power the company’s grain stores, workshops and offices.

With an estimated carbon saving of 5,500t over the project’s lifetime, the solar farm, installed by Vogt Solar, is part of a conservation scheme with species rich grassland and grazing sheep.

Woodhorn managing director John Pitts said: “The sum of this should be a site producing genuine renewable energy in a nature reserve that is still farmed and producing food.”
