Leicester County Council has set its sights on a new solar farm and carbon neutral site, in a new £14 million green project. The site would be based on Barrows Road on the northern outskirts of Quorn, containing 15 industrial units as well as the 10MW solar farm. This would help generate almost 10,000MWh of electricity a year, according to the council. The solar farm would cover 13.6 hectare, while the remainder of the 27.5 hectare solar farm site would be used to preserve and enhance biodiversity. Additionally, the units on the site will have solar panels on their rooftops, and the site will have electric vehicle charging along with other carbon neutral technologies such as LED lighting and rainwater harvesting.
