A £1.2m solar farm at a Hampshire country park has been given the go-ahead.
This will generate around 1 megawatt of electricity – powering around 260 homes a year.
Work on the scheme is expected to start in the summer.
The council scheme will generate a profit of more than £1m in the first 20 years and contribute towards its target of producing 35 per cent renewable energy.
