Former rubbish dump I Essex becomes UK’s largest solar farm

The former rubbish dump in Essex has become the largest solar farm built on a landfill site to generate electricity. Ockendon solar farm is the third largest in UK and has more than 100000 solar modules occupying 70 hectares of land. The owner of the waste company Veolia hopes the solar farm will produce enough clean energy to power approximately 15,000 homes. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2023/sep/11/former-rubbish-dump-in-essex-becomes-third-largest-uk-solar-farm

      The transformation of a former rubbish dump in Essex into the largest solar farm built on a landfill site in the UK is a positive step towards sustainable energy production. The use of renewable energy sources, such as solar power, can reduce carbon emissions and help combat climate change. It is encouraging to see waste companies like Veolia taking steps towards clean energy production and contributing towards a more sustainable future. The fact that the solar farm has enough capacity to power around 15,000 homes is also a significant achievement. This project serves as an example of how we can repurpose land and resources to create a more sustainable future for ourselves and the planet.

              The land needed to provide all the UK'S energy by solar is the same as that used for the game of golf.
