5 MW UK PV park completed


One of the country’s largest, the photovoltaic project is located across 14 hectares on Mingay Farm, Cambridgeshire.

Comprised of 19,960 Yingli Solar modules and 14 Solarmax inverters, it is expected to generate enough energy to supply up to 1,200 homes and save 55,000 tons of carbon dioxide over 25 years.

A spokesperson for Solarmax told pv magazine that construction started at the end of this May, and was completed in mid-July. They added that Solarcentury has further plans to install photovoltaics in the U.K., but that it will focus on projects under 50 kilowatts as opposed to large-scale ground mounts.
