Boosting net zero target by building own solar farm

Cambridge University plans to boost its net zero target by building its own wind farm.
The new solar farm located at farmland off Barton Road, in Barton, Cambridgeshire and will be used to supply electricity to the university.
The farm would free up the equivalent power for domestic use of 7,500 homes, the university said.
Before any instillation can take place the application will need to be referred to the secretary of state.
A representative of the university told a South Cambridgeshire District Council planning meeting climate change was one of the "most pressing problems".

                  We need subsidies on solar panels as they're very expensive for most people at the moment
