Ecotricity’s green gas mill has been given the go-ahead to be built. The project at Sparsholt College in Hampshire – the first of its kind in Britain – received planning permission this week from Winchester City Council. The £10 million green gas mill funded by Ecotricity will be fuelled by locally sourced grass and produce enough clean gas to heat over 4000 homes per year. The project is also expected to inject £60 million into the local economy. As part of the partnership, Ecotricity will also help fund the development of a Renewable Energy Demonstration Centre at the college. The college has also agreed funding of a £1.2 million in grant from the Local Enterprise Partnership (M3 LEP).
