Lenham Solar Farm (Solar , Active)

 General Information.

Location in the UK : England, Lenham Kent    
Type of installation: Solar    on/offshore: on
Solar Panels :16000  Capacity : 6 MW
Approx Date of 1st power generation: June 2014


February 2014: Under construction: can be seen with difficulty from Pilgrims Way alongside the North Downs above Lenham, ie well screened.
Missed the August 2011 deadline for the higher level FITs but as at 15 March 2012, still being planned with general support within the village. Solar Panels as a community benefit fitted on the Village Hall included as part of the overall deal have yet to be fitted.

Recent planning applications for CCTV and yard. Accepted.

The plan will involve the installation of 20,000 solar panels, each panel with a nominal 0.2kW meaning the solar array could have a potential output of 4MW.

Background: A local farmer, Andrew Barr, is working with Kronos Solar to develop a solar park next to Ham Lane in Lenham. The park will be near an existing electricity sub station, at the time of initial proposal, would have been one of the largest solar parks in the UK, realistically at 4MW, effectively a standard sized solar park.
