Plans for what would be one of the country's largest solar farms have gone on public display in Norfolk today (Friday). If it gets the go-ahead the farm at the former RAF base in Coltishall would power up to 15,000 homes.
Plans for a new solar farm have been drawn up for a site at Scottow near Coltishall in Norfolk.
An application to turn 30 hectares (roughly 74 acres) of farmland into a solar farm which could produce up to 12 megawatts of electricity has been submitted to planners.
The site falls within the boundaries of Broadland District Council and North Norfolk District Council. A final decision is expected early in 2013.
Proposals for a 150 acre solar farm are being submitted for the former RAF base at Stradishall in Suffolk.
If the plans go ahead it's predicted that the photo-voltaic cells could provide enough energy to power 7,000 homes.
