Halton Borough Council is celebrating the completion of a new solar farm, set to power the DCBL Stadium Halton. The 1MW site has more than 3,000 PV panels, and will generate around 850,000kWh a year. Of this, around 45% will go to the stadium while the remainder will be exported to the grid. Located on former derelict brownfield land in Widnes, part of the St Michael’s Golf Course site, the solar farm cost approximately £1.2 million and was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), with the council providing the remainder of the cost.
