Rainbows Solar Farm is located just to the north-west of the village of Willersey, Gloucestershire. Set back off the road and surrounded by existing hedgerows, the site is well screened. Following consultation with the local community, BELECTRIC reduced the size of the project to avoid development along the most exposed edge of the site. Furthermore, the use of thin film, frameless modules helped to minimise the impact of long-distance views from the Cotswold Escarpment (part of the AONB).
As part of BELECTRIC’s commitment to providing environmental enhancements on our sites, an extensive planting plan will be implemented at Willersey Solar Farm, which includes planting sections of wild-flower meadows , installing bee-hives and bird boxes.
“It was a pleasure to work with BELECTRIC UK throughout the development process. They delivered at each stage including achieving planning consent in a notoriously difficult area and delivering the highest construction standards within a clearly defined
programme. I would recommend them to any landowner looking for a market leading developer to manage the whole solar farm lifecycle.”
