Keighley solar panels scheme approved
9:00am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
An array of solar panels has been given the go-ahead by Bradford Council, with planning officers saying they offer an attractive alternative to wind turbines.
In the planning report, officer Peter Timbrell said that Council needed to support more green energy schemes, and solar panels were more suitable in rural areas than large turbines.
He wrote: “It is clear that all areas have their part to play in the generation of ‘clean’ energy.
" However, the greater majority of renewable energy developments in the district have so far comprised wind turbines, whose very significant impact upon sensitive areas of the Green Belt has outweighed their energy potential.”
