Lackford Estate Solar Park wins Solar Power Portal Award

Lackford Estate Solar Park in Suffolk won Solar Power Portal Award 2014 in the category 'Best Utility-scale Solar Farm >10MW'. Clarkson & Woods worked with Inazin to develop the project and promote biodiversity on the site, one point commented on by Solar Power Portal in their award write up. The 87 acre site is adjacent to a Special Protection Area (SPA) for Stone Curlews so special care was taken to manage the site in favour of the colony. This site is now commissioned and provides electricity for 6,112 homes.

As well as the promotion of biodiversity on the site, the Award also recognises excellence in a number of other areas including project design.
